The April Heatwave - Kew Gardens in the SpringtimeApril 21, 2015
From the palm house we found a blossom tree lined path full of the prettiest cherry and plum blossom.
Ben sat down while I was taking photos, a common occurrence... but he looked so cute sitting and watching the bees on the blossom. And then I got him to take one of me on my favourite bench.
Kew is huge, there's so much to see. We looked on the map but mainly just wandered. It's still early in the season for a lot of things but there was still a lot of pretty to see like these snowdrops.
Kew have got nearly every type of plant/flower/tree imaginable. We found a magnolia patch with a carpet full of fallen petals.
And after a couple of hours of wandering we were ready for lunch so I left Ben in charge of finding a nice spot to set up camp while I went to the car to get our picnic basket. Ben had an operation last week so was still meant to be recovering and not actually meant to be doing much walking bless him.
I think you can go inside Kew Palace, maybe we'll have a look next time.
And we came across more tulips near the Alpine greenhouse.
Frilly cream tulips and pinks are going to be on my shopping list for this autumn's bulbs.
A truly lovely half a day out! We could have spent longer there had we not wanted to get to Richmond and check in at The Bingham. More on that next week...
