My day at Kew Gardens started with this:

The Temperate House: this is the largest Victorian glasshouse in the world!

Finally I met up with my friend Catherine. We had first met on the Cotswold Garden Tour over a year ago and kept missing each other in London (she is from the States also.) So this was going to be a treat. She knows Kew very well and walks there almost every day she is in London as she has family very nearby. She was the perfect host!

Just a few of the many magical moments in my day. Once again, the weather was lovely!


Just look at that color of Kew Palace! Somewhere between a coral, an orange, a sandstone…


And a short review of another wonderful…truly wonderful…day spent with friends at Petersham Nurseries. Yes, that famous/infamous/IG favorite place. Hmmm: did Terrain here in the States take a few hints from Petersham?

Day at Petersham Nurseries

Walking along the Thames from Richmond all the way to Ham House was nothing short of magical. And my friends..well, it was a day of bonding, long talks and walks and oh so enjoyable.

There is more, but time is short. I am home now and the memories will always be with me.
