Londoners are spoilt for choices when it comes to green spaces. With eight Royal Parks and numerous commons and gardens scattered around the metropolis, it’s easy to recharge and escape from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. This may sound a little middle aged but gardening is one of my favourite pastimes. As a quintessential city girl, dirt and green things used to scare the living life out of me, but with some practice, I think I’ve just about overcome my fears – although worms and caterpillars will always be my arch enemies. There’s something magical about nature which seems to know the perfect spell to soothe me back to life so whenever I’ve got a spare moment, I try to find the nearest green space for a little breather.
The St Mary’s Church Gardens is one of my local green spots. Unlike the Islington Green Gardens, the St Mary’s Garden is tucked away behind Upper Street and seems to be shielded from all the vibrancy of Angel. There’s rarely anyone there which makes it my personal oasis with shrub, rose and herbaceous beds. With tulips in full bloom, we thought it was the perfect location to take some photographs of the horticultural delights of the season.
