Return to Kew Gardens

 

We recently made a return visit to Kew Gardens which are the Royal Botanic Gardens of Great Britain.  Their latest installation is a walkway which takes you way up to the top of the trees and gives splendid views over the parklands and across London.  It is quite a steep climb to the top and although there is a lift it is not yet working.

  Here you can see the walkway and that I did arrive at the top!!

Kew of course in renown for the flowers and here are two different types of lily, the fragrance is terrific I wish you could smell them!

But there is so much to see at Kew the many famous glass houses

Visit to Kew July 149

This is the Palm House they are renovating the garden here and restoring it to Victorian splendor, it will eventually be a Knot Garden made up of lavender and roses.  Unfortunately there was a huge grass box dumped just where I wanted to take the picture so I could not get it completely symmetrical, oh well a good excuse for another visit!

The wild life is to die for! this little family came eagerly to meet us and Visit to Kew July 102  willingly posed whilst I took the pictures with so many children life must be a balancing act especially if you only have one leg!!

Visit to Kew July 139

 Here is another resident who willingly stood still whilst I took my pictures

Well I hope you have enjoyed this walk around Kew with me, it was  a lovely day and I hope you did not get dizzy on the tree walk LOL

Walk with me again soon

    Hi Suki:
    It’s so nice to see a comment from you.  I think these self-imposed absences are very important.  I’ve taken them from time to time.  In fact, I’m sort of in and out of one right now….lol.
    It’s so wonderful to have such nice friends as you…..friends that make you feel good when you see that they’ve been by for a visit.
    That walkway sounds amazingly beautiful, but without a lift working, it’s not somewhere I could visit.  The pictures a wonderful, as usual.  I love the heron one.  We have a heron in the park near me (well, we have lots of them, but this one is special); his name is Henry.  He’s been there for "donkey’s ages" and is a fixture in the park now.  It think he’s had his picture taken a least a trillion times…lol.  There’s an elderly lady that goes to the park every single day, even on the coldest days of winter, and feeds Henry such things as canned sardines and canned clams, etc.  I don’t know what Henry will do when she can’t come anymore.  I hope Henry peacefully leaves first.
    Hugs,
    Diane

    I enjoyed the photos from Kew so much the last time, I was happy to see you went back.  Funny that even on the west coast of the U.S. I have heard of the famous gardens all my life, and to hear both Kenny and Swampy admit they have never been, I don’t feel so bad about having never visited the Rhododendrum and Bonzai gardens in Federal Way, WA.  I really should have because I lived close enough to walk most of my life.  I think I will make that effort now.
    Yes it is nice to think we all watched the opening ceremonies 8/8/8.  Wow!  I confess I was blown away, and I am seeing China through new eyes this morning. 
    Blessed be
