How about some more photos from our trip to Europe? You can read part one here.
On today's post, our trip to the Kew Gardens in London..... 300 acres of floral delight.
First though, another sign that amused my American Midwest mind. I loved the way it this one was worded. I found myself wondering what the American version of that sign would be. Too funny!
On the way to the subway that morning, we walked past a lovely farmer's market. I wish I would have taken more photos there... not only were there breads, flowers, cheeses, veggies and fruits, but also fresh meats! Something I don't think I have ever seen at a farmer's market here in the US.
Our travel plan to get to the Kew Gardens: a subway from our apartment and then a boat on the Thames River!
What a delightful way to travel. Especially the day we went... it was quite warm! I anticipated a good chance of rain in London, but we didn't see any rain the whole time we were there and instead I ended up getting a little sunburnt! We never thought to pack sunscreen for our trip to London!
The bridges were fabulous and the countryside so pastoral, once we left the city.
And now I won't bore you with commentary on the Kew Gardens... I'll just show you some of the loveliness that we enjoyed. Well, perhaps I'll insert a few comments, but I'll try not to add too much!
Loved the use of the word "whilst" on this sign... so beautifully British!
On the grounds of the Kew Gardens is the oldest and largest Victorian glass house in existence. I found myself totally enchanted by this structure.
It was a little too hot the day we visited to enjoy being inside for very long, but I loved the ornate detail. Fabulous!
If I were a swan, I'd definitely be hanging out at the Kew Gardens!
Rejoicing in His beauty... found in so many places!
