Spring in London

A little picspammy of our stroll around London yesterday. It was such a beautiful day so we wandered in St. James's Park (which is the oldest of the Royal Parks of London) and walked along the Thames before heading to the Courtauld Gallery to look at some Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art. Even though it is still pretty chilly outside, spring is certainly making way here. The signs of spring, such as cherry trees in bloom, make me a very, very happy lady.

  6. After seeing these lovely photos I definetly want to be in England. We just got more snow yesterday and day before that. And the only thing hinting about arriving spring is extremely slippery streets and bloody cold and hard wind. Lovely photos and you look as lovely as always =)

  7. Brilliant pics! It was lovely this morning, too. I met a friend for lunch in Covent Garden and decided to walk from my flat--I didn't have to wear my coat!

    PS, Blitz Party in April, for sure. It was so fun!

  8. Rhia - I hear you! Pretty much every single day I hear my Finnish peeps complaining about snow and just count my blessings to be here, away from winter.

    Kendra - Thank you! It has been so lovely lately, hasn't it! And yes, we definitely need to go to one of those parties together. Fun, fun, fun!

  9. Lovely! It looks mostly the same in Paris, there are cherry blossoms and it's getting warmer and warmer! Can't wait for the weather to stay that way all the time.
