London in Bloom showcases the floral abundance of the city’s extraordinary parks, gardens, florists, and flower markets. In this companion to her popular books Paris in Bloom and New York in Bloom, Georgianna Lane takes us on a romantic floral tour of London, juxtaposing luscious blooms with intricate floral details found in iconic architecture. The book also includes:

Lane offers a practical travel guide for anyone planning to see London in bloom in real life. She plans out a tour of spring blossoms, with a field guide for identifying flowering trees and shrubs. She even includes a list of addresses for her favorite parks, gardens, floral boutiques, and flower markets.
Lane writes, “No place, real or imagined, enchants quite like an English garden. The ornate gates, the tumbling roses, the winding paths, and the sunlight winking through branches of delicate blossoms have long inspired poetry and romance. . . . Some are intimate and secret, with secluded corners and mysterious pools where dragonflies hover or fantastic creatures might even dwell. Others are impressive and majestic, their rolling parklands reminiscent of an eighteenth-century landscape painting.”
For flower lovers and Anglophiles alike, London in Bloom offers a unique and irresistible view of London, a chance to bring “poetry and romance” to your home or to give it as a gift.
