Kew Gardens 13th Smile

Standard

The Waterlily house is open again, hurray, of course with limited amount of people going in at a time.

Some close ups:

The Rose Garden was amazing, all roses blooming and giving their wonderful scent to us.

I found some beautiful coloured flowers, which I thought need a bit of ironing…only joking 🙂 The crumbly look made them even more special, they were rather delicate in both colours.

A special playful large scale bench waited for us to simply sit, relax and smell the planted circle of rock roses in the middle and enjoy nature.

New growth coming form every tree, and plant. I always love to see growth.

Every time I visit I find different plants, flowers and enjoy nature more than ever. It pushes happiness button every time and makes me grateful to live in such a wonderful world.

Heaven is under our feet as well as over our head.

Never give up – like Nature

Standard

I was walking through a forest with trees fallen down.

Yet still more growth comes through the trunk which lies on the forest ground.

It reminded me that

Nature never gives up.

new beginnings

Every day is a new beginning.

Take a deep breath, smile

and start again.

If you don't give up on something
you truly believe in,
you will find a way.
Roy T. Bennett
You should never give up.
No matter how hard the situation is,
always believe that
something beautiful is going
to happen.

If you are in a situation like that at the moment,

please know that you are not alone and you are precious and loved.

My best wishes for you

and may the rise for you soon again.

♥♥♥ Sending hugs and comfort to you ♥♥♥

It is getting warmer

Standard

After a cold May with rain, hail, storms and the odd ray of sunshine

the weather realises that is is nearly June and needs to be warmer.

For the last 2 days it has been warmer and

flowers, bushes all really start to bloom.

I love it.

Lilac is in full bloom and smelling amazing.

These are my amazing finds during a walk in a park.

Can you smell that amazing Lilac?

The earth laughs in flowers

to quote Ralph Waldo Emerson

Kew Gardens 12th Smile

Standard

It has been a long time since visiting Kew Gardens.

Yesterday I visited it again during the day with glorious sunshine,

as it is open for the grounds only.

Everything is starting to bud and grow.

The Monkey Puzzle tree is among the top ten species in need of conservation.

It is such a beautiful tree.

Kew Gardens never disappoints, a true oasis.

We had such a wonderful time walking the grounds.

Enjoy nature and smile with your whole being.

Growing, my joy!

Standard

My garden is my joy.

I love things growing and I take care of them.

I check how my plants grow.

We are lucky the weather is good and

I spend lots of time in the garden admiring my babies.

My Canna Lily, I received from a friend last year is coming again.

I check how my planted seeds grow.

I had Cornflower seeds,

they grow beautifully.

I tried seeds of radish,lettuce,

carrots and onions.

They are coming on fine.

It is such a success story.

Every little success is a feel good factor.

Don’t expect too much of yourself.

In the words of François and his yogi ladybird:

What is your success story for this week?

 

Take care my friends and stay safe.

 

 

Kew Garden at home

Standard

Kew Gardens is closed.

So I look around and

look:

I found my own ‘Kew’ Gardens right here:

When you enter you find beautiful colours and shapes:

Following through there is the palm garden with

3 different palm ‘trees’

Continuing the path you see different greens

Then we come to the Bonsai Trees Section, there is a Chestnut and a Maw Bonsai in the making.

And finally to the Alpine house, where we find this:

I hope you enjoyed the tour through Ute’s Kew.

 

Wishing you a blessed Easter weekend!

Keep the distance and stay healthy!

Colour splash

Standard

A neighbour of mine has a hedge of ‘Red Tip Photonia’

Now is the time where it really grows.

It grows with very vibrant red leaves,

they shine beautifully in the sun.

If you truly love nature,

you will find beauty everywhere.

Vincent van Gogh.

A welcome beauty right now.

Find positive things,

see the good, see the beauty.

It is a challenging time.

Be well friends ♥
