London heats in April sun

Climate Change, UK Climate Change

sunny-thursday-in-london-001The weather was glorious today and  London looked at its best with blossom on the trees and bright blue sky. With everyone so busy, rushing from place to place , I sometimes feel that the beauty of the trees and flowers dotted around are missed by people passing by.

I spent my lunch break just wondering around, soaking up the rays and discovering the delights of spring amongst the crowds of office staff and students enjoying the weather in Russell Square and a popular place for families – Corams Fields .


Weather forecast predicts another five days of this glorious weather – long may it continue – maybe the figs outside UCL might even ripen? Amazing that they survived the cold weather and snow over the winter – shows how the buildings in London act as a giant thermal insulator with all the heat they generate – time to put this to better use

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
