A Day at Kew Gardens

As lots of you seem to enjoy my Lewes pictures, I thought I will show some different day out pictures. When I had a day at Kew Gardens.

When Richard and I first got together, we use to always travel up to Kew Garden for a day out. It was so romantic walking around, laying on the grass looking up at the sky and talking about our hopes and dreams for the future.

For those who don’t know, Kew Gardens is a massive park/garden area in West London that houses some famous greenhouses and monuments. It also a horticulture dream paradise.
Richard’s parents are into horticulture, so they are friends of Kew, which means they get free passes after paying an annual fee. Which benefits us as we can use the free passes and also go whenever we want.

We’re not into horticulture, one little bit. I don’t have the green thumb skill as every plant I own has all died very quickly and I couldn’t 5 names different plants to save my bloody life. However, it still nice for to walk around and to photograph all the flowers.

Which brings me to my point, someone recently asked me on why I take so many flowers pictures? I didn’t know I did till someone mentions it to me – truthfully flowers are a better subject matter when it comes to photographing. It doesn’t move about and it quite easy to take a picture.

Anyway, a day at Kew Gardens are from a few years ago now, since we been married we haven’t yet gone. We keep talking about it – but we keep making other plans instead. I suppose now I’m working from home full-time, I should make the effort to visit sometime; with or without Richard.

Here are some photos from a day at Kew Gardens. If you want a relaxing day in an open park that covers miles upon miles of flowers and greenery. Then I do recommend you to visit.

    Such a beautiful garden. I would love to spend a day here. Particularly with my kid. I am sure we would both enjoy the experience.

  • I’ve never heard of Kew Gardens but after seeing the beautiful pictures it’s definitely a place I’d like to visit! Next time I’m in London you can find me there 🙂

    I’ve never been to Kew Gardens, but have a few favourite flowery spots closer to where I live and they are always such lovely places to visit – seeing the bright and pretty flowers always makes me smile! x

    What amazing photos. I have visited Kew Gardens some years ago, but I admit I don’t remember much about them except they were beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Why do we tell people to “earmark” certain things?

    Oh this brings back memories of when I lived in London. Visiting Kew Gardens we always took a picnic. Laying around eating a delicious array of cold salads and drinking Pimms was one of my favourite days out. Exploring Kew Gardens seemed endless. I have yet to see the entire park.
