Up at the crack of dawn today, as it's my only full day here in the UK and the sun is shining .... again. So off to look at what's blooming in Brighton before getting down to work. The Royal Pavilion Garden is beginning to fill with flowers, and is quite a sight to behold first thing in the morning - lots of tulips coming into bloom and with the wonderful backdrop of the Pavilion.
Bitterly cold out there after Florida (as I soon realised how scantily clad I was in the east wind!), but never mind, because it all looks so glorious! The Pavilion Gardens are just one of many free parks and gardens in the city.
Then on to one of my all time favourites here in Brighton - the Rock Garden in Preston Park, where there's always something in bloom. But spring is a particularly good time to visit because of all the tulips.
Another quick post because I've got so much to do, but just wanted to share all the wonderful spring blooms with you! More later, I promise as I'm going to visit some other gardens later and hope to have even better blooms to share!
