Back to Kew

Yesterday was due to dawn sunny so - you guessed it - Kew it was.

The trees are turning, the colours are going to be good this year, it is all the rain earlier apparently. Can't wait for a couple of weeks when it should be brilliant.  Yesterday was good too, it had been very wet overnight but dry by the time I woke (plenty of puddles though.)

 As usual it wasn't quite time to open when I arrived - the view through the gate!
A lot of dew still on the grass and long shadows growing
and reflections in the Palm House Pond
Love the effect of the steamed up lens inside the tropically heated Palm House!
 More reflections..
and glimpses through trees

 These poor bulbs (they're not Autumn Flowering Crocus though very similar) have been battered by the recent rain!

 experimenting with contrast of dark and light and the shadows
 these trees will be beautiful soon!

 Love these colours, some sort of vines hanging over a pergola
and a brilliantly blue sky behind..

Just loved this reflection that of the sugar maple trees in this window!
this is the actual tree!


Hope you enjoyed my trip as much as I did!
