This spring has been a wonderful time for bright, colorful flowers. A few days ago the hydrangeas in my front yard started to bloom. Last year they mostly produced leaves, but now there are flowers like this.
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…
