I wonder what time it is?

Last weekend, were fortunate enough to attend the Chelsea Flower Show and stay over to visit London!

On Sunday, we took the train to visit the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.  This 300 acre garden has five conservatories that each specialize in specific plant material.

Inside the Palm House is a staircase which allows guests to view the conservatory on two levels.

The Temperate Conservatory was closed, so I was only able to admire the outside Victorian architecture. I now have a reason to return!

    It is so neat that you are bringing a bit of England’s gardens to your blog. I too do not care for Canadian geese. Enjoy your stay to the fullest.

  2. It sounds like you’re having an awesome time visiting all the best gardens in England! I spent some time working in Kew’s Palmhouse and Waterlily House, it’s one of the best botanical gardens in the UK for sure. Lovely photography, can’t believe there was a goose sitting on the plants!!
