Spring Blooms in Covent Garden

Just got back from L.A. and have been bitching and moaning about the weather since I stepped off the plane. I was actually wearing a spaghetti strapped dress three days ago…without a jumper on top. But, Spring is springing in London as well. “Spring Renaissance” will begin in Covent Garden on the 23rd of April. Horticultural events and celebrations will abound. Look out for the two giant 25 foot peacocks (I think maybe they are made of flowers and now real), return of the flower market, weekend workshops, hanging baskets and fun for the kiddies. Men were at work today planting stuff, so check it out! As a resident of Covent Garden, might I remind you to take your rubbish with you and don’t drink too much and vomit in the Piazza. It’s not a good look for anyone.

    I know this is freakish, but I much prefer the weather in London to that in LA. Wilting, insane hotness and no variety! I’d rather have the bizarre hailstorm that chucked hail right down my chimney and out onto my floor in little sooty snowballs this morning. Excitement!

    Plus in London we have this weird thing where there can be five different kinds of weather going on at once. Like it’s sunny in Stokey but snowy in Clapham. Genius.

    Also our clouds are insanely fast-moving and fascinating. Ref: Turner.
