We’re celebrating Easter in London this year. Though Ella Fitzgerald might sing about loving Paris in the Springtime, for us, London is the place to be in Spring, when blossoms push forward from every corner. Here are a few favourites to wish you a truly lovely Easter.
It’s the little crocus, with their saffron hearts, that are the first to bring the promise of Spring in Hyde Park.
The fragile beauty of magnolias, glowing here in the setting sun (above), is so fleeting, especially when London rains arrive.
It’s hard to believe this explosion of cherry blossoms were actually so pink, but there they were one afternoon in Hyde Park.
Walton Place (above), with its white-blossomed trees a perfect compliment to the creamy white stucco buildings, is one of London’s most perfect little streets.
And this morning we spied bluebells pushing up against the iron grating in Hyde Park, just in time for Easter.
We feel spoiled to find such a beautiful spectrum of colors over the course of a few days, and are reminded of Oscar Wilde’s quote: “The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.” Happy Easter!
