Kew Gardens in April

After visiting Richmond on Friday morning I took a diversion on the way home and went back via Kew Gardens.

Kew has an amazing history- partially tied up with being the retreat George III and his wife Charlotte - at this time Kew was considered pretty rural.

It is also very much on the tourist map and features like 'The Japanese Garden' attract international visitors and their commentaries too,

A calm place amidst the hurly-burly.

Another feature of the gardens are the structures which provide a time-line dating back to Victorian glory days there are modern Glass houses too.

Generally I'm not too envious of other homes (or other items - if you aspire too much take a look at this Video from 'School of Life') but wouldn't mind living in the one below - convenient and with a balcony - quite something.


It looks like a great place to live and on Kew Garden's doorstep.

The other day I highlighted a figure who reminded me of my Dad, during this visit I saw a figure that made me think of my Mum.
A reminder of Mum.
