What I like best about Spring is the very fresh crisp vibrant leaf colours on the trees which tend to dull down as the months progress.
This is the view - on a showery day - of the 20th century - Edwardian Garden (1900-1914) via the windows of the extremely nice cafe. I wasn't too successful in getting the subtle and very pale purple colours of the wisteria over the pergola (bottom right). The dark elongated pyramid structure in the middle is a Pelargonium Pyramid in the Mid-Late Victorian Garden (1860-1890)
