If you ever find yourself in London on a gorgeous sunny day, hoof it straight to my new favorite place – Kew Gardens.
It’s a beautiful spot to get off the beaten path and spend the day wandering through some truly stunning English landscapes.
We started off stumbling through the forest, until we arrived at the Treetop Walk. We bounded up the stairs onto the elevated walkway and strolled around through the canopy enjoying the views.
Back down on terra firm, we paced over to the Azalea Garden to admire all the vivid blooms.
Trouncing down the path a little further, we came to a grove of towering rhododendrons.
I had to whip out my camera phone to take a few mobile pics.
After finding our way through a clearing of bluebells, we emerged onto the lawn of Queen Charlotte’s 18th century thatched cottage.
And we were quickly welcomed to have a peek inside.
The grounds were so lovely, I had to do a few little bunny hops of excitement.
Until I got a bit breathless and flopped down on a soft bed of daisies to take ten.
There were bamboo gardens to stroll through.
And bridges to cross the pond.
The old glasshouse was filled with exotic flowering plants from every continent.
We climbed the wrought iron spiral staircase to walk around the rafters above.
And generally just larked around looking cool.
But this guy gave us a run for our money with his posing!
I guess what’s good for the goose is good for the gander!
A jolly good day at Kew Gardens!
