London blooms in yellow

A catch-up from my last two weeks Kingdom-side. March is the month of daffodils in London. They bloom earlier than in Poland. Two weeks of settled weather, the first rain fell on Thursday, a day before my return to Warsaw. Plenty of daffodils. Some have been in flower since the tail-end of January. The growing season is extending. Below: outside my father's house.

Below: looking up Clarendon Road in Ealing, towards Fox Lane, daffodils over the Thames Valley Water mains running down from the reservoir at the top of the hill.

Below: Haven Green, Ealing Broadway. The white fencing around the green is an original feature.

Below: daffodils in Hyde Park.

Below: magnolia in bloom, Hyde Park.
