Along with the daffodils and the tulips, the other gift I anticipate the most about spring is my trip to England. When I was in London in December, the decorations were still in place from the Queen’s Jubilee…and now it will be decorated for the coronation of King Charles, a poignant juncture in time. I had no idea in November when I started planning this spring trip that the date of the ceremony would be May 6. Fortunately I return on May 4, just just in time to miss all the crowds.
In a way of sharing my enthusiasm about this upcoming trip I’ve selected some of the memory-inspiring shots that I’ve taken over the past years of London and the countryside, in spring and December (interspersed with an architecturaly-varied selection of that most British staple, the pub). Enjoy and I wish you safe travels, too. Be watching your in box for a series of blogs on all things British…including gardens, of course.
