February has proved that winter is not leaving just yet. At the same time all the spring flowers like daffodils, snowdrops, crocuses have continued to flower all over gardens and parks in London. As I have mentioned in some other post I try to take part in #wildflowerhour on Twitter every Sunday evening when people share the photos of wildflowers spotted all over UK during the last week. Here is the collection of the wildflowers seen during the whole month. The highlight is obviously a first bluebell spotted last week.
I have also visited the Royal Horticultural Society Botanical Art Show in London yesterday. So many talented painters and so many beautiful paintings. I have not taken many photos but bought this botanical illustrations of Roscoea humeana from Chelsea Physic Gardens plus some botanical postcards. The gardens are on my list to visit this spring/summer. There is also another botanical art show in London in April organised by Society of Botanical Artists which I am looking forward to.

You have found so many spring flowers! I am amazed that Garlic Mustard is already flowering in London; there is no sign of it here yet. The botanical drawing is so beautiful! I love the details in the drawings.
I love botanical art, could fill the house with it 😉 The garlic mustard was just a single one I have seen this month.
I love botanical paintings.
I love it too, should start collecting 😊
You have so many flowers out in London – not so many yet in Cardiff, so lovely to see your photos. And I also love botannical art. Might have to get to London for a show. 🙂
The show was rally good, lots of beautiful paintings to look at 😊 can’t wait for another one.
So nice to see spring returning once more. Thank you for sharing your pictures and the beautiful blossoms.
Thank you for a visit. Can’t wait for more Spring flowers.
I love flowers and green plants – I don’t have a garden of my own so it’s always a pleasure to virtually visit yours! 🙂
I don’t have garden either but go around the local green places and parks. Thank you for a visit.
Beautiful capture and love wild flowers.
What a beautiful collection of wildflowers! I don’t think we have nearly as many blooming just yet.
