Tulip time...

Yesterday the gloom lifted and in beautiful spring sunshine I took the train to London where I had arranged to meet Lynda so that we could investigate the art store called In my excitement I arrived at Charing Cross about an hour before I needed to, so I stepped into the Embankment Gardens, and this is what I found.
Dech chairs waiting for the band...
A man on a camel..
A rather distraught young woman...

and tulips, tulips everywhere

Our visit to Atlanis was a success but our visit to the Backyard Market was a little disappointing, perhaps we hit a bad day. On the way home I walked through Trafalgar Square which was even busier than normal, there was a Visit Holland event in progress and guess what... more tulips.

This is one in my garden that had opened out wide to take in the sun (a bit like me)

I can tell you, for me, one of the great joys in life is stolling through London in the sunshine and passing the time with a friend. Good day.
Please feel free to use these photographs.

As a follow up to the last post Stephen Durrant's Owl was runner up in the competition and was shown on the programme. Congratulations Stephen.

I love tulips and have always wanted to go to Holland for the bulb festival.
