In pictures: Londoners reveal the best blossom they’ve seen during lockdown

Written by

Spring has sprung in London and boy, is it beautiful. Who doesn’t look forward to seeing the capital covered in spectacular shades of pink and cream each year? We certainly do. And while not everyone is as into their flora as the Londoner who has been labelling trees in Walthamstow, we can all appreciate a pretty-looking plant – even if we’ve only got an hour a day to do it at the moment. 

We took to Twitter to ask for your help in finding the #VeryBestTree you’ve seen during lockdown and you guys didn’t disappoint. Check out our favourites below. 

One Londoner saw some gorgeous pink and white blossoms on their West Hampstead walk. 

This tree in Lloyd Park hangs over an adorable little bridge. 

Some stunning shades of pink and purple at The Rookery in Streatham. 

 This entire street is decorated with blossoms. 

We love this close-up shot of a tree in full bloom. 

This large tree is surrounded by the multicoloured houses of Chalcot Square in Primrose Hill. 

The sunset peeks through the branches of these trees in Leyton (bonus points if you spot the parakeets). 

This absolute beauty can be found opposite Regent’s Park. 

A solitary blossom tree stands watch over this cemetery in West Croydon. 

This dog looks pretty pleased with the gorgeous tree it’s found.

Thank you to everyone for your ace pictures. We think it's safe to say London is looking bloomin’ beautiful at the moment. 

If you want to see more blossom you can check out all of the pictures here.
