Kew Gardens 4th Smile by night

Standard

Early darkness invites to many lights.

With Christmas coming up

what is better to combine light with Christmas

and start the Christmas season in the big garden.

Kew’s Christmas Lights!

 

My favourite new flowers in Kew!

 

 

There were light shows with music, laser light pictures projected on a screen of a water fountain, green laser lights with fog, amazing displays of colourful lights, a whole field of lights changing colour with the rhythm of the music and much more. Too much to capture everything on camera. Of course there was mulled wine and hot chocolate too!

I did capture it all in my memory!

Kew Gardens 3rd Smile

Standard

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

(I don’t know all the botanical names, as my eyes are bigger than my memory)

‘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

Shades of Green

Standard

Green is the colour of nature.

The colour of Mother Nature

The colour of Life and energy.

It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility.

Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety.

Dark green is also commonly associated with money.

 

…. just look at these different greens….

so many shades

 

 

and many different shapes and textures.

 

 

Green is relaxing for me, it feels warm, yet fresh.

However I do not have many outfits in green.

Do you love green?

What is your favourite colour?
