‘He has made everything beautiful in it’s time.’
and to bring the beauty from all over the world,
Kew Gardens is celebrating the Orchid Festival until March 10th.
It really is a festival of colours, sounds and beauty.
This year there are Orchids
from the world’s most biodiverse county: Colombia.
Breathtaking displays of orchids,
a sweet smell,
accompanied with Colombian music,
even the cacti have hats on….
Let me take you through with this donkey:
Animals made include a toucan, a swimming turtle…..
and a life sized Jaguar
There are 1000’s species of orchids,
different colours, different sizes.
Enjoy the show:

If you look the right way,
you can see that
the whole world is a garden.

A cold day in Kew Gardens and so many things to see:
The Temperate house is home to an internationally important collection of temperate zone plants, including some of the rarest and most threatened.
It is the largest Victorian glasshouse in the world.
As a Listed Grade 1 building, it has been restored to its new glory and re opened in May 2018.
Walk with me and enjoy the rare and beautiful plants.

Each plant showing off its beauty in different ways.
There is a spiral staircase to walk up along the Gallery.
The view is fantastic, and the sun was shining.
On my way out I passed the gift shop and found some lovely Bamboo socks.
I couldn’t resist.
I’ll be back at Kew very soon!

another day… to focus
not on technology
but the beauty around you.
Look at life with different eyes,
find the positive
Look at life with your heart!
It is BEAUTIFUL !

Another visit to my favourite garden.
Every time I explore different areas.
As it is so big, I never run out of finding beauties of nature.
This time I found
the making of a pinecone
A really funny shaped very small bloom:
(I don’t know all the botanical names, as my eyes are bigger than my memory)
One of my favourite grasses
Another pretty little thing – a hanging flower
One of Kew’s famous lizards
a tall proud multi coloured beauty
and another hanging blue miracle
‘Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. ‘ Genesis 1,11
