Spring in London

Hello again!

It’s very difficult for us, Mediterranean people, to understand the importance that nice weather has in countries where sunny days and warm temperatures are so rare!

Last winter has been long and very wet. There have been important floods near London. The sun was weak and often hidden behind dark clouds. Hats, gloves and scarves hid people’s faces and hands… So sad!

Suddenly in March the temperature rises and the sun really shines. And the city changes! Parks and gardens fill up with smiling people and some curious facts start…

In the week, clerks and students, shoppers and workers, have lunch outside, eating and laughing…

At the weekend the parks are full of families and friends playing football, cricket, rugby, volleyball, lacrosse…

People take off jumpers, jackets and socks, and walk barefoot on the grass.

Thousands of small colourful flowers appear on the ground. Daffodils mark the start of the spring and they are everywhere… Also in many buttonholes!

Everybody seems happier! Spring is perfect time to visit London.

Finally… one question, a difficult one!: What  are the two essential things you need to play lacrosse? 


Flood: the inundation of land because of heavy rains or high level of a river.

Buttonhole: the hole in the clothes for passing the button… (En català: trau, en castellà: ojal)

    Hello Pili 🙂

    How beautiful is summer in London 😀
    Lacrosse is a fast game between two teams of ten players each using a stick with a net on the top to pass and receive a rubber ball in order to score goals holing the ball in the net of the opposing team.
    Pili we miss you and love you very much

    Hello again Nora! Your question is very interesting, I’ve copied this answer from the Internet: “Post boxes in the UK were originally painted black. That made them difficult to spot, especially at night, so someone had the clever idea of painting them bright red”. See you!
