Tulips seen at Kew Gardens – FOTD

Last year I took my daughter for a long weekend to London. It was a birthday gift and hence I let her make the plans for our trip. She studied in the ins and outs of botanical life (if I may say so) and if she finds a bee here in Vienna she can determine in which district it lived, just by dissecting it and checking what the little creature has eaten. Tiny flies, bugs and bees will find everything their heart desires in her garden. The variety of flowers she is growing amazes me again and again.

Kew Gardens – temperate house

.

KEW GARDENS

One of the places she wanted us to check out was KEW GARDENS HERE, which didn’t come as a surprise. We went on a cool and windy day, with alternating rain and sunshine. At one point it was so stormy that we had to run into one of the temperate houses, in order not to get blown away.

It’s an amazing place to go to and see and marvel at the the huge selection of flowers and plants. So if you enjoy the peace and trees and blooms in many colors, visit Kew Gardens.

The gardens are located at

Kew, Richmond, London, TW9 3AE

TULIPS AND A MATCHING SCARF

The year before a friend gave me “Lanternes, Ballons et Cocardes” an Hermès scarf designed by Katie Scott fas a belated birthday gift. I wanted to show you this unusual scarf as an addition to my #28scarves posts, so I brought it with me. And one of my tasks at the gardens was to find flowers that matched the tomatoey red of the scarf’s colorway. I finally found them and my daughter took pictures of my scarf and me.

I’ll introduce this scarf to you at a later time.

    Kew Gardens is one place I would love to visit and get lost in. Beautiful photos and your scarf does match the colorful tulips. 😀

      🙂 Dear Cee,
      Kew Gardens would be THE place for you to enjoy. The plants and flowers are fascinating! I took so many photos last year, that I almost gave up on sorting them. Still enjoying the momories when I browse through them.
      A very HAPPY week to you! 🙂
