Although some might argue that spring doesn’t official start until 20th March, the weather during the last few days has left us in no doubt that the season of new beginnings has well and truly arrived.
And if you can’t get enough of the stunning spring stirrings, we thought we’d point you in the direction of the New Covent Garden Flower Market blog, because it is bursting with the most gorgeous photos of beautiful flowers, many of which are swaying gently along our roadsides and hedgerows.
We also thought the images would inspire your entries to our #flowerwatch competition, which offers you the chance to win your own beautiful seasonal bouquet. All you have to do is tweet us a floral photo that captures the essence of spring, whether it’s a blanket of bluebells or a close-up of a colourful crocus, and the winner will receive a radiant bouquet of glorious yellow daffodils and perky purple tulips from Marks and Spencer.
We are running our #flowerwatch competition because we hope it will make you more aware of the dazzling displays of beauty in our roadsides as you drive to work, or to the shops, even on your schoolruns.
So get snapping and post your #flowerwatch entry on our Twitter page @etyres. You can tinker around and use your favourite photo editing app to improve on what Mother Nature created or post it au natural – the choice is yours.
Deadline for Entry:
Just make sure you post your #flowerwatch photo on our Twitter page @etyres before 5pm Wednesday 30 April and we will announce the winner the following day on Thursday 1st May.
