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.

In nature nothing is perfect

and everything is perfect.

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.

Today is …. #24

….. a day to smell…..the world.

 

Wherever you go today

wherever you find a flower,

put your nose closer and smell the scent.

Soon you will notice that even different roses have varied scents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A feast for your nose today!

 

Live simple,

love well,

and take time 

to smell the flowers

along the way.

Kew Gardens 1st smile

Standard

In my post from 4th August I shared with you that I had become friends with Kew Gardens.

 

Last weekend

the sun was shining,

birds were singing,

and I felt free.

I made a quick decision

to visit Kew Gardens.

 

What a good choice!

I was greeted with this view.

 

Behind the Palm house was the rose garden.

For today I like you to go with me to smell the roses.

Forget the business and enjoy the smells and colours!

There is so much more……

Soon more from Kew Gardens
