Summer has arrived in London. It’s a good thing, too, because winter lasted well into May and Londoners were growing weary of complaining about the incessant cold. Now that we’ve moved on to moaning about the sweltering heat, we’re all in a better mood. And with better weather and better moods come the exciting outdoor pursuits of summer. One of these is the famous London Open Garden Squares Weekend. Today I’m happy to announce that I will be giving away two pairs of tickets for the event, which takes place next weekend.
If you don’t know about Open Garden Squares Weekend, it is the only weekend of the year when private gardens across the city are open to the public. Secluded squares, manicured hotel gardens, and pretty green spaces around London open their gates and welcome visitors with music, food, and festivities. It makes for a great day out, especially when the weather is as nice as it has been recently.
I went to London Open Garden Squares Weekend two years ago and had a great time exploring the gardens of Belgravia. You can read about it here. I would go again this year, but I will be traveling to California for a wedding in Sonoma (tough life, I know…).
Now that I have (hopefully) convinced you that you need to go, here’s what you can do to win one of the two pairs of Open Garden Squares tickets:
Leave a comment on this post that includes a description of your favorite garden, park, or green space. It can be anywhere in the world, so feel free to be creative!
The two entrants with the most entertaining entries will each receive a pair of tickets to London Open Garden Squares Weekend, which takes place from June 9 – 10, 2012. I will choose the winners this Friday and notify them that day. If the tickets aren’t claimed with 24 hours, I will give them away to another entrant. Good luck and enjoy the sunshine!
