Kew Gardens

Last weekend, as part of my birthday celebrations, Carlos and I headed to Kew Gardens with a picnic packed, two cameras and excitement.  I had been to Kew Gardens as a child but had been wanting to go again for ages, so my birthday was the perfect excuse!  The gardens are located in South West London but they are so much more than the name suggests, the area is hugggge (as in the size of a big park) and has areas to just walk around plus huge conservatories too as well as allotments.  We spent four hours there, but could have stayed for longer had we not had plans for later on.  Wikipedia tells me that Kew is home to to the world’s largest collection of living plants, wow!  It is also of course, a photography lover’s dream!  🙂  So, here are some of my favourites from the 120 I took!DSC03637DSC_0077

Do you like visiting gardens?

  1. Kew Gardens is one of my favorite sights in London! I’ve visited 3 times, but only one of these times it was actually sunny and I could explore (and take pictures) the gardens properly! I also like the greenhouses a lot!!

  2. Belated Happy Birthday. Wow, Kew Gardens is a nature lover and photographer’s dreamland…So, much amazing life forms. A perfect to just relax, remember fun childhood memories and create new exciting ones. Each picture, a vivid reflection of the many beauty and blessings around us. Have a wonderful Summer!

  3. Oh wow, I am completely in awe of these photos! That peacock, what a magnificent beast of a bird! Places like this are my favourite place to take photos and where I think most of my photo skills lie, so I love seeing photos from other people and getting inspiration! This post was definitely inspiring to me 🙂

    I’ve never had the chance to visit Kew Gardens myself, but I’ve heard many a nice thing about it.
