In Bloom


Summer came early this year when I took these photos in May. July was a disappointment and August hasn't been much better. Ah well, typical Britain.

There's times when I find myself bored of London, but I think it's natural when you've lived in the same place your whole life. Despite the abundance of variety - art, food, music, people - the grey hue that often exists over the city makes everything feel quite samey, so I'm grateful for the little bit of summer we get.

Without travelling to Hyde Park or one of the gardens, you can sometimes forget that nature exists here, so seeing flowers in full bloom and grass that reaches my knees makes a welcome change.

Not a big fan of the insects though, especially the flying ants. Those I could do without.
