It’s just so quintessentially British to talk about the weather, particularly to gripe about it. It felt like spring throughout much of the United States recently, and then it teasingly went away. Now we find ourselves pining for warmer, sunnier days. While we wait for the more agreeable weather, let’s take a peek at 10 photos of London during springtime here:
