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

you can see that
the whole world is a garden.

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!

Green is the colour of nature.
The colour of Mother Nature
The colour of Life and energy.
It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility.
Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety.
Dark green is also commonly associated with money.
…. just look at these different greens….
so many shades
and many different shapes and textures.
Green is relaxing for me, it feels warm, yet fresh.
However I do not have many outfits in green.
Do you love green?
What is your favourite colour?

It is not living that matters, but living rightly.
