I cycle past this carpet of flowers — crocus, daffodils, jonquils and
bluebells — every morning and it always takes my breath away.
I might not have had to ponce around in my high-viz jacket to take this photograph (as I had predicted in this post), but I did have to get up quite early on Easter Sunday to take it. There wasn’t a soul around, but even so I wasn’t brave enough to clamber over the wrought-iron fence that prevents pedestrians from tip-toeing through the blooms. This meant I couldn’t take any close-up shots, but you can’t have everything!
With the amount of sunny weather we are having right now — summer has arrived a little early here in London — I don’t think these blooms will last very long. But if you’re a Londoner — or even a tourist in town right now — you can view these flowers at the Park Lane end of Hyde Park, a short walk from Hyde Park Corner.
