Flower powers

It has been wet, cold and miserable outside for longer than I care to remember; the official start of spring yesterday and was met with rain and gale force winds. My Easter holiday in the Lake District is looking like its going to be an Arctic wash out ! So I felt the need for a proper flower fix. I traversed a few areas on campus but there’s not much happening; I headed to glass houses for some serious plant perving. My cravings were satiated – Enjoy.
