It looks like April is for showers AND flowers. After some rain a few days ago there are new places to see flowers. Here is a forsythia that’s in bloom in my backyard. The yellow flowers seem even brighter compared to the trees that still don’t have any leaves. It’s wonderful to share a picture I’ve just taken!
I took these pictures at the Chelsea Flower Show several years ago. When I got off the tube at Sloane Square to go to the show I heard someone say to follow the crowds. After a few minutes I saw directional signs and got there early enough that I could walk right up to the exhibit gardens. These were the first flowers I saw.
Here are some of the floral displays I visited on that beautiful sunny day. I also brought home postcards, pamphlets and other souvenirs!
For someone who loves flowers (like me), it was an unforgettable experience. I’m looking forward to going there again someday…
