Where flowers bloom, so does hope - Lady Bird Johnson

While keeping the kids off public transport, I had to drop one in the city for a medical appointment and wait around. I ducked over to roam the Royal Botanic Gardens and was delighted to discover In Bloom is back at the Calyx. 

A small donation and the stunning display is yours to enjoy.

I was short on time to stroll around the gardens afterwards unfortunately, but that brief burst of sunshine and the beauty of  abundant colourful flowers was enough to make me feel euphoric. 

The best bit, I was inspired to organise lunch in the gardens next week with a friend, so it's almost like back in real life....
What's making you love life this week?

  1. So beautiful. Glad you're planning lunch in the gardens with your friend. #lovin'lifelinky

  2. How beautiful, Lydia.

    I've not been brave enough so far to venture to many public places but the brilliant weather is tempting me to be braver, responsibly so, and discovering the beauty of spring through parks and gardens.
