Hyde Park in the spring

Today I went to Marble Arch with my daughter – a beautiful, truly spring day in London. In nearby Hyde Park, thousands of people were there picnicking, playing ball games, sleeping or sunbathing (I still don’t understand the peculiar British obsession with baring any bit of flesh to the sunlight as soon as the smallest patch emerges).

Spring is here and so are the cherry blossoms!

The cherry blossoms are out in London and the birds are singing. The sky is blue. Strange to think that last month we had the most snow here in almost 20 years!

After attending a 9.30am breakfast meeting (over a delicious spinach, cheese and mushroom omelette at Richeloux, St John’s Wood, which I am still raving about) I wandered down Circus Rd to capture the spring blossoms… sadly, I only had my mobile (again) but you get the idea.
