Hello again, had a chance to go to Kew again today, even though (as the title suggests) it wasn't a perfect day! Took hundreds of pictures, just a shame there is no blue sky behind them! Hope you enjoy.
the magnolia inside the gate, petals dropping onto the bluebells underneath
beds of bluebells in pockets around the gardens
lots and lots of trees in blossom now, so fragrant.
beds of tulips outside the Princess of Wales glasshouse
refuges inside the POW, from the Temperate House during it's restoration
looks so different without the vibrant orchid display of earlier this spring!
stunning Jade Vine with lots of pendulous blooms hanging
the giant Titan Arum growing madly
perlagonium in the POW arid section
more trees in blossom outside
the flowering cherry by the Palm House Pond
inside the Palm House, love how the lens has misted up again (I kept wiping it) and created this atmospheric shot
despite the gloom, the greens of the trees and grass are vivid already
the branches of the acer are covered in moss, beautiful!
the lake at the Sackler crossing
starry petals of the Camus, a big drift of bluey-violet
the path through the wooded area to the bluebell wood was VERY muddy and it was hard in places to stay on my feet...
but the bluebells are looking pretty already
and more magnolia
hope you enjoyed all these - lets hope next time we go, the weather is kinder (was glad of my big duck down filled coat!)
