It's been a while....

Hi, there poor neglected photo blog... I have finally managed to finish the film that I started at my great niece Maisie's Christening in June.... guess where I went... go on, guess... Bet you can't...

But first some more of Maisie.  She is so cute!
 my nephew Peter making a speech before he cuts the cake!
 which was so pretty and very tasty!  Though he's a chef, Peter didn't cater for the party but it was all lovely!

 Then it was on to - oh you guessed - Kew - last Saturday (there is a story behind the delay in the photos but it's boring so I won't bother with it!)

Their summer theme as you saw last time, is "IncrEdibles" with all manner of edible delights on show, but since I went in June, these amazing willow sculptures have appeared all over the place too - they were fabulous - so I got a bit carried away with the pictures...

 giant mushrooms!

 they were so tactile too.

 by the time I was preparing to leave, there was lots of other people admiring them - and getting in my way, ha ha!!   That's why I like to go as early as I can!

 and there are beds and beds of pumpkins growing along the Broad Walk - I expect they will use the resulting veg in their restaurants later in the autumn.
 Sunflowers outside the now closed for restoration Temperate House - it's all roped off, so I couldn't get closer.... I love sunflowers though, and these always look great this time of year.

So there you are, against greyer than they really were skies (I really must get a photoshop programme to do something about this!!)
my day - well morning - last week at Kew.

Thanks for looking.
