We have collected all the colourful photos we have taken during the several springtimes & summertimes in England to awaken your senses and to inspire both your passion for nature and for creativity!
Hope you will enjoy this post as much as we enjoyed curating it!
Got this book as part of my training to live a ZEN LIFESTYLE. Mindfulness in all we do is a recipe for a SIMPLE but FULL LIFE!
Oh how thoughtful this little upcycled iron statue/planter. If we live thoughtfully, we can make good things out of the ordinary things we already have. Sometimes what is really lacking is not stuff but INSPIRATION! Now that should ring alarm bells in your life if you feel like you are living a boring existence despite you drowning in material possessions.
This pretty hanging flower basket is a typical sight in London during summertime. Natural is hundred times better than if they had just installed plastic flowers.
This is the sight outside a quirky London cafe. Talk about urban gardening! This is such an inspiration of what city dwellers can achieve with whatever little space they got.
These little beauties look like little ballerinas. I don’t know the name of these flowers but they could easily be called pink ballerinas or pink tinkerbells lol. Royal Horticulture Society please forgive the naivety.
This beautiful landscape can easily be the subject of a landscape painter. If you want to walk into this beautiful garden in person, you can visit SHEFFIELD PARK & GARDEN managed by the National Trust in Sussex.
This rich floral entrance is the main driveway to LONGLEAT HOUSE & GARDENS as well as its own SAFARI PARK. LONGLEAT is a massive place. You should allocate at least a day or two to enjoy all it has to offer without rushing from one attraction to the other. During summertime, kids and adults won’t be disappointed in this place.

During summertime, everything appears full of life. These dainty little flowers are some of the wild beauties captured on camera during our walks in the glorious English countryside. It’s good to be alive!
During random hikes, we just carry our phones and not bring any bulky gadgets just to lighten our load. Have focused on this hotpink beauty called Foxglove but it turned out the camera focused on the background lol (old phone of course). This is supposed to be a dramatic macro shot! Hangon did they just call this flower foxglove? Can’t help but imagine foxy with these hotpink gloves on lol. Lesson learned, always bring the proper camera in case a beautiful snap presents itself. It also free up your head from constantly saying I wish I have brought the camera with me. Believe me, the frustration can be real lol. However, always look at the brighter side of life!
Dainty little flowers paint this seaside walk the colours of Summer!
This is Brighton seaside during the summer high season. Tourist coaches line the parade to frolic in the sun and to sample what Brighton has to offer.
Tulips abound in England during late Spring and Summer. If you are near London and wish to visit a magnificent Tulip Garden, head over to Holland Park Dutch Garden. However, for the ultimate in tulip obsession, you must head over to Netherlands for the Tulip Festival most specially in Keukenhof Gardens.
