I tried some ICM – Intentional Camera Movement- Pictures of different motives.
Designed by UK based artist Wolfgang Buttress, The Hive is a visual tribute to Britain’s honeybees. Originally created for the UK Pavilion at the 2015 Milan Expo, it now lives in our Gardens at Kew – surrounded by wildflowers to celebrate the environments that real bees need to thrive.

More Lilies in the outside water pond
Pumpkins in the kitchen garden
Nature does not hurry,
yet everything is accomplished.
We loved Kew so much; It was sunset when we left.
All pictures taken by me in Kew Gardens, except the focused Hive picture - from Google.
The word “narcissus” is derived from the Greek word narke, meaning numbness (also the root of the word narcotic); the flower may have been named thus because of the intoxicating fragrance of some species.
There are so many varieties of Daffodills and Narcissi varieties and scents.
We were transported to the fairy-tale setting of Kew’s Magnolias, they grow on bare stems.
Trees full of Magnolias, different colours, sizes and varieties.
We found this little delicate beauty in the grass – Snake’s head fritillaries
Then we followed on to the Cherry walk
Not all were open, yet I caught some perfect with the blue sky.
It felt wonderful to be under the Cherry blossom trees,
sun shining, blue sky.
Spring makes you feel alive.
Where flowers bloomso does hope.
