Springtime in London

Spring was glorious this year in London. I was amazed to see so many flowering trees and plants that don't grow in tropical Houston. This tree is a magnolia--doesn't look much like our magnolia trees in Texas.

Forsythia were a hint of green leaves to come.

A walk through Hyde Park was very revealing. No one wanted to be inside with such blue skies overhead.

All celebrations of spring and hopes for a warm summer ahead.
