That’s a word, right? Well, it should be. We visited London for five days in 2012. Hard to believe it has been 11 years already. It was my first trip across the big pond and I thoroughly enjoyed this historic city. It was spring, and the flowers and parks were coming alive as the UK was preparing for Queen Elizabeth’s diamond jubilee.
This House of Cally teacup and saucer always reminds me of the wonderful landmarks in London and the Fortmason tea I’m enjoying today is from the famous Fortnum & Mason.
The book below the teacup, London in Bloom by Georgianna Lace, is a beautiful display of the many stunning flower arrangements throughout the city. During these cold months in Maine, it’s a nice respite to see flowers and brightly colored doors and window boxes.
If you have a good chunk of time, and are interested, you can view my photo album from our trip in 2012 and read my blog posts as we visited many of the historic sites and made a few day trips to other fantastic sites.
I loved London. Vibrant and modern, yet oozing thousands of years of history around every corner. Cheers!
