‘He has made everything beautiful in it’s time.’
and to bring the beauty from all over the world,
Kew Gardens is celebrating the Orchid Festival until March 10th.
It really is a festival of colours, sounds and beauty.
This year there are Orchids
from the world’s most biodiverse county: Colombia.
Breathtaking displays of orchids,
a sweet smell,
accompanied with Colombian music,
even the cacti have hats on….
Let me take you through with this donkey:
Animals made include a toucan, a swimming turtle…..
and a life sized Jaguar
There are 1000’s species of orchids,
different colours, different sizes.
Enjoy the show:

A day out works wonders – like a mini holiday.
You come back refreshed and relaxed.
I tried it for you to give you experienced advice.
We went for one day and night to Cambridge, the famous University town.
Cambridge is a city on the River Cam in eastern England, home to the prestigious University of Cambridge, dating to 1209. University colleges include King’s, famed for its choir and towering Gothic chapel, as well as Trinity, founded by Henry VIII, and St John’s, with its 16th-century Great Gate. University museums have exhibits on archaeology and anthropology, polar exploration, the history of science and zoology.
Walking along the river Cam are many bridges- hence the name Cambridge.
We came along punters and we signed up for some punting.
What an amazing experience, what fun!

The Sky was blue,
the weather was hot,
a real mini holiday!
Go for a mini holiday,
do something different at the spur of the moment,
enjoy every moment
and have fun.
You feel refreshed, relaxed,
ready for the new week!
Oxford is a beautiful University city in England.
It has been a town since 9th century and has an ancient university.
My friends and I recently visited Oxford for a day out.
Here are my impressions:
We finished a wonderful day out in Oxford
with a traditional English Cream Tea.
Cream tea – refreshments
In August I went on holiday to different places for short periods.
( Mallorca- Spain and Germany)
In Mallorca the palm trees were my favourite, ( see here)
In Germany the lakes for swimming were super.
This is the dress I bought in Mallorca.
With Spanish temperatures in Bavaria I could wear it again.
Here is the proof….. I went into this lake too….
yes, I did go deeper and swam, it was so refreshing.
What a view of the blue sky …… under the shade of a tree.
The flowers with all the different vibrant colours always bring a spectacular show.
I also have learnt how to make the best latte or cappuccino, with frothy milk.
Goes really well with a slice of Black Forest Gateau.
Life is good!
Enjoy every moment!
