…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!

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!

There is a religious catholic holiday in Germany called Fronleichnam
In English it is called Corpus Christi.
I was fortunate to witness it on Thursday, while I visited my mum.
Custom is that people make flower carpets where the procession walks along.
They are made out of leaves, flowers and petals of different colours.
I saw the fresh carpets in the morning, and they were so beautiful.
Please peruse through the slideshow:
We saw the procession coming from the church.
The priest read from the bible and then they
continued to the town center.
It was lovely to watch in beautiful sunshine.
