Spring has come and gone and I find it difficult to understand why time lapses so easily.
This day, one of the most beautiful of London’s spring days, offered sunlight and warmth.
Though a chilly breeze did greet us, but it was just perfect as it was accompanied by
the downpour of a golden sunset. Trickling bit by bit over the cloudless, blue skies.
encapsulating floral moments
I met with Sara to capture the true essence of Spring among the cherry blossoms, one of
my first experiences with cherry blossoms actually. I always loved flowers as I grew up with
many vases and trinkets adorning fresh roses from my mother’s garden. I didn’t, however,
realize how much I missed a proper springtime landscape until this very moment. When
you live in London, you seem to get so busy with the next appointment or meeting and
forget that the surrounding green spaces exist for you to release from the everyday life.
And so as Sara and I meandered through the various paths of Kensington Palace Gardens, we
were purely enthralled by the floral essence of the garden’s passageways and floral variety
and their aromas. For a moment, I had escaped reality (and trust me, reality that week was
too difficult for me to handle) and at this one moment it was just what I needed. The
daytime sun was replaced by the sunsets glow, the breeze came through and it started to
shower flower petals. A truly enchanting moment and one that caught the eye of a sweet,
little stranger who asked her mother gaze straight on me, “mommy, is she a princess?”
