Wow.  Is it really Spring here?  In London?  After 3 years of dismal and unforeseen change of weather conditions (at least my hayfever didn’t last very long), an elderly apple tree in my family back garden has finally, FINALLY blossomed for the first time in many years, this is a rare treat.  Hopefully the bees will work its burlesque magic and produce as many apples as before.  Now that Spring is here and absorbing enough rays of Vitamin D, why not visit Kew Gardens and explore greenhouses, landscapes, gardens and delve into the mystery of its botanical history.  I personally like visiting the glasshouses not because of their Victorian horticultural structure, it’s feels like you’re transported to Nania….the jungle style, never mind the sauna effect.

    I’m hoping to visit Kew Gardens when I have the chance this Summer.

    I want to go to Kew so bad, it’s just so expensive. It definitely looks worth the money though. Just need to wait until I’m not so poor!

    I’m definitely a fan of your photography, and you’ve gotten some special and interesting angles in the building! Amazing. Looking forward to more!

    Yay congratulations on having a proper spring :) :) I can’t believe I missed out on going to Kew when I was there, hopefully they’ll be open at the end of the year as we’re planning to visit London/St Albans again for Xmas!
