…a day to enjoy travels …
I traveled North to Oslo for a short trip.
The first thing I saw in Oslo was the beautiful flowers everywhere in open spaces.
Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful;
they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.
~ Luther Burbank ~
Specially now in Summer
the flowers are the most vibrant!
They really do make the Earth laugh!

When I was at Kew Gardens last time
I was fascinated by the fern growing.
The way it unrolls itself, looking like an ammonite first…
each stem …..
then each little side branch unrolls separately
with more leaves unrolling.
Everything unrolls slowly to perfection,
all in good time.
Nature is fascinating.
Adopt the pace of nature.
Her secret is patience.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

‘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.
