I wanted to try and catch the bluebells again this year at Kew and have been keeping an eye on the Kew website (they do a spring bulb/blossom update) to make sure I try and catch the peak!
The weather forecast for Saturday here in London was poor - but when I woke up it was fine, albeit cloudy - so I took a chance. My normal quick train route was hampered by engineering works so took longer than normal with a replacement bus for half of the journey to Clapham Junction, but I still managed to get there for the 9.30 opening!! (I do wake up early,even on my days off...)
So here are some of the best of the pictures I took yesterday (thanks to Jessops for getting them developed and printed/copied to cd early today so I won't miss the footie!!)
BUT it is so worth it, on clear days you can see for miles, and the views over Kew are fantastic.
The gunnera in the foreground at the waterside will be huge in a few weeks and it will look totally different. I'll have to see if I can find it again.
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed your trip with me! There won't be any more next week as it's the stamp show at Worthing (i.e. spending more money!!) See you soon.
