some weeks ago when I was at Kew later than normal I was struck by the pretty street lights across Kew Bridge but missed the photo. Today they were standing out well against the cloudy (but also some blue,) sky
and headed towards the lake...
think these might be Cypress fir...
On the bank at the other side of the lake, the swans were preening and preparing for a swim (well one of them went in)
maybe they'd had a row!
Sparrrmania Africana (had to capture the name) which I also shared on FB
I walked towards the cafe and shop to find something to eat...
and look how many petals have fallen, too!
It will probably be the last time I can do that this year...
As I sat there, a volunteer brought round a small group on their tour of the garden... they admired the cake and I told them the bench was very comfortable, as I swung my legs out of the way so they could read the inscription!
after I'd finished I went and did my Christmas shopping (one for x person, one for me, one for y person, one for me..)
and then went to the Palm House to see if the robin was still inside
there were a few spits and spots of rain in the air, but fortunately nothing worse
mirrored by a skeleton of a plant in the border
looking for the chinese water dragons, but they were all hiding today
blowing in the breeze
they were hard to spot
this time I still had my camera ready.
Thanks for joining me again.
Now, who's going to write my Christmas cards for me????
