It’s been a very mild winter here in London so far. Usually by now it’s freezing and sometimes there’s even snow. This year, as the temperature hasn’t dropped so much I have been coming across some pretty sights on my lunchtime walks.
I’ve loved seeing these vibrant yellow daffodils emerging and making the grey days seems brighter. On a Sunny day it’s easy to think that Spring has already arrived.
I also spotted these pretty pink flowers that really made me think of Spring, and these very neat vertical flowers that look a little surreal.
As much as it’s lovely to see spring-like flowers so early it does have me a little worried as it’s not normal. Are these effects due to climate change or is it just an odd winter? I think only time will tell.
Unusually, I was in London from the 12th to the 19th, and i also felt it was way too warm! (I was expecting it to be warmer than in Wisconsin but after the first day, it was almost balmy!)
Yes, it’s definitely milder than expected, I’m usually bundled up at this time of the year. Hope you had a good visit to London 🙂
I did, although I was teaching an online class. So it was work all day at the computer, then evening visits to see Richard Armitage in the theatre. No sight-seeing at all, which was a shame, but that is how it had to work out. I *did* eat a lot of great cuisines not available to me at home. You are lucky to live in such a vibrant, diverse city.
I saw Richard Armitage was in the theatre at the moment, hope you enjoyed the play. There is a diverse range of food in London which I agree is great. Shame about the sight seeing.
It was a very good play (I liked it better than his last play), but not at the level of The Crucible. However, it’s a pleasure to watch him on stage no matter what he does. Sight-seeing: next time!
