Spring has arrived in Regent’s Park when you see people taking photos of the cherry blossom in Avenue Gardens and Chester Road. Other spring highlights in Avenue Gardens include rows of tulips in the formal beds, and naturalised daffodils in the lawns. There are snowdrops and bluebells in Queen Mary’s Garden.
You’ll also find a good selection of bulbs and harbingers of spring such as aconites, crocus, iris reticulata, primroses, pulmonaria, scilla and wood anenome in the St John’s Lodge Garden. Look out for the golden green haze that envelops the trees all over the park as winter recedes. Notice the leaves coming out on the willows in Queen Mary’s Garden, and the gaussian blur produced by the trees around the wild fowl area north of the Inner Circle.
