Great images have been released today by the Olympic Delivery Authority showing the parklands that are beginning to take shape around the 2012 venues.
The vast majority of pictures up to now have understandably focused on the construction works as they progress.
But it is nice to see a bit more of the natural surroundings coming forward.
The ODA says more than 60,000 plants, grasses, herbs and flowers from across the globe have been grown in an Ashford nursery and planted along with 60,000 bulbs in the Olympic Park London 2012 Garden.
The riverside garden stretches for half a mile between the Aquatics Centre and Olympic Stadium.
More than 120,000 plants from 250 different species across the world have been arranged into four temperate regions in the garden: Europe, Americas, Asia and the Southern Hemisphere.
There are over ten football fields worth of nectar-rich annual and perennial wildflower meadows in the Olympic Park, designed by international wildflower experts from the University of Sheffield.
ODA chairman John Armitt says: "The 2012 Garden and wildflower meadows will help create a festival atmosphere right at the entrance to the Olympic Park during and after the Games.
"The riverside gardens are a colourful celebration of the British passion for gardening as well as the world-leading work of the UK horticultural companies helping to create this fantastic new park."
