I took myself to Kew, of course, especially as I missed last weekend because of the rain (typically today was also wet)
At 11am I stood and observed the two minutes' silence (I always listen to the radio with me so knew when it was time) before continuing on my way.
There were raindrops on everything... stand by for lots of photos of raindrops (now I am home, of course, the sun is coming out, just in time to set again!)
the camera doesn't capture the true colour though (we'll be back this way later and try again!)
and this tree was such glorious colour
with the Palm House as backdrop
the giant Gunnera have been cut back and the leaves are obviously left in place to protect the shoots overwinter
We Will Remember Them
together with a wreath from today
told you I'd get a better one! An hour later and I'm back here..
was going to head straight past on my way, but decided I'd pop into the cafe first for something to eat...
can you tell where I'm going yet?
I make no apologies for repeating my visits
heading for Cedar Vista empty of the willow displays now
for the lake
change colours, too - really must make an effort to go this year!
(I'm including them in case I don't get back when it's on )
spent ages getting the right angles for the colour, reflections and birds... willing them not to fly away!
thanks very much for staying with me - at least you kept dry!
it was nice to get home and put dry socks on!
