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!

Kind words do not cost much.
Yet they accomplish much.

Another visit to my favourite garden.
Every time I explore different areas.
As it is so big, I never run out of finding beauties of nature.
This time I found
the making of a pinecone
A really funny shaped very small bloom:
(I don’t know all the botanical names, as my eyes are bigger than my memory)
One of my favourite grasses
Another pretty little thing – a hanging flower
One of Kew’s famous lizards
a tall proud multi coloured beauty
and another hanging blue miracle
‘Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. ‘ Genesis 1,11

Good Morning my friends.
It has been a while
since I had enough time to sit and compose something
and visit all your blogs regularly.
Even though holidays I have been away and had visitors,
which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Finding new places in London to show my visitors I stumbled on some
yet fairly unknown places.
This is a new development, not even finished,
but the beautiful roof garden is finished.
It looks rather futuristic.
It features plants from East and West, meeting in the middle. A calm garden on top of a new railway station which is being build in Canary Wharf. It was calm and quiet in the middle of a concrete world. We had a lovely walk and enjoyed the amazing plants and trees there. Have a look for yourself!
There was a piano in the middle of the building so I couldn’t resist to do a fun bit on it which my aunt taught me.
It was great fun and a great place to visit!
More discoveries in the next post!
Keep smiling and enjoy the warmer weather!
Over Easter, I visited the Sky Garden, the highest garden in the UK. It is on the 35th floor of a building called ” the Walkie Talkie” in London.
Security is high , just like on an airport.
It was amazing to walk around this exotic garden!
It is free for the public but still needs to be booked and only open during working time, so I was happy to get tickets in the holidays.
Well worth going when you are in London!
It was wonderful to add this day to treasured memories.
Enjoy your day and see the beauty along the road!
