I was keen to get to Kew again after the excitement of Paris and then Ally Pally last week... and luckily, this morning was forecast to be dry, sunny and warm(ish) and more importantly, the trains weren't affected by engineering works...
The tulips were looking fabulous, as I made my way to the woodland section for the bluebells..
past the Walkway, (didn't go up it today, wasn't feeling energetic enough!)but it's looking lovely in amongst the budding trees and shrubs.
the woodland section was indeed, bathed in bluebells and sunshine..
and offset by the bright yellow/lime green in the sun
Came across the charcoal kiln tucked away in the woods today..
dappled sunshine, by Queen Charlotte's Cottage.
love this shot, it looks deserted (good timing that!) although it was getting busier by now.
peacocks sunning themselves too...
and the Temperate House, closed for restoration but looking stunning against the still blue sky (it did change as I left!!)
and the Gunnera at the other side of the Palm House lake growing a-pace
missed the daffodils a few weeks ago,
but these alpines in the Alpine House were fabulous.
as were the patches of bluebells all round the place - think these are white and pink ones which I've not seen before, but they were gorgeous too
and finally more tulips on my way out!
Thanks for looking - hope to go again soon as everything is growing so fast now.
