It may not be officially Spring until Monday, but thanks to a warm spell Islington is already enjoying longer, sunnier days. Here’s five signs spring has sprung:
- The daffodils are out in force.
These yellow beauties are popping up all over the place. This lovely lot can be found in Spa Fields.
- Lunch breaks are moving outside.
Forget the sad salad at the desk, now’s the time to eat al fresco. Take a leisurely lunch.
- Camellias are starting to appear.
These delicate pink camellias were spotted on St. John’s Street, proving nature can bloom even in the middle of the city.
- The ice cream van’s in town.
If you can outrun a hungry child, get down to Northampton square and you might find the elusive ice cream van, emerging from a long winter hibernation.
- Regent’s Canal is shining again.
It’s not the clearest of waters, but when it’s reflecting the trees in the sunshine, Regent’s Canal can be beautiful.
