Oh England: My Lionheart
I have absolutely loved all the flags and bunting around London recently and spent a relaxing May Day wandering around the city taking snaps of just how nice everything looked in the wake of the Royal Wedding. The above photos show Regents Street decorated with hundreds of Union Jacks (though my boyfriend tells me they are only called "Union Jacks" when they are on ships... who knew?!), St James Park in full bloom; The Mall closed to traffic and littered with excited tourists; Horse Guard's Parade; And Westminster Abbey - looking rather clean and splendid. This was London at it's best, with an amazing buzz about it - and of course, we have William and Kate to thank for that. Yes, I may have moaned about all the media coverage in the run up to the wedding, but I can't lie - I watched it start to finish on the day. Haha. I even spotted knitted versions of the happy couple in the window of Liberty! So sweet.
