Welcome, Spring!

Winter is officially over, hurray! 

...If only someone had informed England. Fewer clouds next year, please! 

But in any case, I love that the days are getting longer, and temperatures are slowly creeping back into double digits, and flowers are starting to bloom! I'm so excited to soon be surrounded by proper English gardens.

In the meantime, during today's lunch break I settled for a walk through Tavistock Square Gardens and admired a pretty pink magnolia tree. It was quiet in the square, which is an unofficial peace park (it has a statue of Gandhi in the center, among other peace-promoting memorials). 

Colors are coming. I can feel it. Spring is here.
