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.
I received a bunch of Daffodils last week.
One after the other opened
and gave me a complete sea of yellow in my front room.
It gave a beautiful Spring feeling.
♥ Enjoy Spring ! ♥
Kew Gardens is closed.
So I look around and
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!

…. a day in nature
Go and see nature at its’ best.
A rainy day is the perfect time for a walk in the woods – Rachel Carsen
Rain leaves beautiful ‘diamonds’ on leaves.

who are smiling when it’s raining!”

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.
