Spring is on its way in Fitzrovia’s open spaces. The Friends planted a number of different woodland-floor flowers last year and the first of those are blooming now.
Snowdrops have been out for a couple of weeks and daffodils are starting to bloom. Expect to see more surprises popping up later this spring.
Camden Council has also planted a semi-mature hawthorn tree this week to replace a rowan that was removed last year. Hawthorn is an important native tree and supports a variety of wildlife as well as having an attractive early spring blossom with a delicate scent.
