Kew Gardens 25th Smile

Standard

Kew this month was very colourful and buzzing.

This time we spent time in the Evolution Garden

This garden is 1.3 acres, filled with around 700 kinds of plants and brings over 350 million years of evolutionary history to life.

Bees and other Pollinators were busy pollinating.


In nature nothing is perfect

and everything is perfect.


Heaven is under our feet
 as well as over our heads

My little violet in the grass

Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Food for thought

Whatever people do, feel, think or say,
don't take it personally.
Others are going to have their own opinion
according to their belif system,
so whatever they think about you is not about you,
but it is about them.

Just realised I forgot to post week 18 picture – so here it is.

Being really busy and not having internet always – it is harder at the moment.

So please bear with me and I do try to visit you all in between.

Joy is a pure state of bliss,
and it's attained by bringing comfort and relief to other people.
Doing so will bring joy to your life everyday.

An outing to wild Wakehurst – a sibling of Kew Gardens in Sussex.

Lots of woodlands, walks and great colours from Rhododendrons and Azaleas.

Sending everyone much love. You mean so much to me. ❤️

When words are 
both true and kind
they can change the world.

Spring is here with more colours than ever.

Kew is just magical.

Tulips are still blooming

Then there is plenty of more pink and purple.

Fun Fact:

Fossils have revealed that magnolia plants existed at least 20 million years ago. Magnolia officinalis bark is used in traditional Chinese medicine remedies to improve lung health and treat anxiety.


Apple Blossom – so pure white

Trees green, pink, red make a wonderful contrast.


We found plenty of Bluebells


Still in the woodlands we found Camassias- from the asparagus family.

Delicate flowers bending in the wind.

A real splash of vibrant colour gave this Rhododendron bush.

Nature is the best healer, relaxer and

the best happiness generator for me! ♥

for those who want to see them.”
