Despite the bad weather in the UK in recent days, warm sunny spring is already quite close. This means only one thing - flowers and trees will wake up after a long winter's sleep and begin to bloom. Very soon London will turn into a multi-colored fragrant bouquet, which will cheer up all the residents of the capital, who got used to the winter melancholy. We offer you a short tour of the most "flower" places in London.
It was these flowers that inspired the poet William Wordsworth to write the magnificent poems. If you cannot make up several rhymed lines, you can always come up with a clever prose.
When: during March and April.
Where they grow: most of the daffodils grow in St James' Park. No less beautiful yellow and white glades of flowers can be seen in Kensington Gardens, Victoria Embankment Gardens and Kew Gardens.
Bluebells can be safely attributed to one of the main attractions of London. Each spring, they "attack" the capital, covering all kinds of non-asphalted places with a soft blue carpet.
When: from early April to mid-May.
Where they grow: in almost every corner of London: in the north - Highgate Wood, in the east - Wanstead Flats, to the south of the river - Oxleas Wood, and also on Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park.
If in the near future you do not have the opportunity to go to Amsterdam to see their tulip plantations, you can wait for the flowering of London tulips, which in beauty are in no way inferior to their foreign brethrens.
When: from the end of March to the middle of May, although the peak of flowering of flowers falls on the middle of April.
Where they grow: the most beautiful tulips grow near the Hampton Court Palace, as well as near the Buckingham Palace. In addition, tulips can be seen in St James' Park, Regent's Park and Kensington Gardens.
Gentle magnolia and cherry
Do not miss the chance to enjoy excellent flowering of the London magnolias and cherries, as these plants finish blossoming very quickly.
When: cherry blossoms in late April and early May. Magnolia is less predictable, it blooms from March to June, depending on the plant variety.
Where they grow: blooming magnolia can be found on St Leonard's Terrace in Chelsea or near Kenwood House near the park Hampstead Heath. In a pink hue from the flowers of cherries Greenwich Park, Chester Road in Regent's Park, the area near St Paul's Cathedral, and Redcliffe Road in Chelsea are painted.
Not so popular plant in London, unlike others. Nevertheless, there is a place in the capital where you can experience the "Azalean adventure".
When: from the end of April to the beginning of May.
Where it grows: all shades of pink can be seen in the brightest place in London - Isabella Plantation.
The capital is going crazy about the beauty and aroma of wisteria every year. Do not miss the opportunity to make a stunning "flower" photo in Instagram with a purple plant.
When: from April to June.
Where it grows: most of the wisteria grows in Chelsea, Kensington and Notting Hill. You can also see this amazing plant near Kynance Mews, Abingdon Road, Gordon Place and Cheyne Walk.
