Kew Gardens

Richmond, England

On a very wet day, Craig and I went to the Kew Gardens.  They are beautiful!  There are large green houses with tons and tons of flowers!  We went into one that was amazing and so big that we didn’t even see all of it.  There were columns with different flowers growing all over them.  This one has more tropical flowers on it, others have orchids on them.  Their orchid collection is gorgeous, I have never seen such large and colorful ones.  AMAZING place to visit, definitely want to go there again!

In Bloom

Esher, England

I was so surprised how much nicer the weather is here in England, than I was expecting. It’s February and the flowers are in bloom. Crocuses are up as are the Daffodils. From what we were told, it is Winter here from December to January; Spring, February to June; Summer, July & August; Fall, September to November. So, if someone likes Spring, this is the place for them!

There were beautiful flowers around the pool and because I had a broken rib, I wasn’t able to really swim, so I did what I love to do, I took photos!

Flower and Reflection

Poipu, Kauai, Hawaii

As I was walking along I saw this flower that had fallen to the ground.  I thought it looked cool with the reflection in the water.  So, I put my GoPro down and took this photo.

As I was playing with my new toy, a GoPro camera, I took this photo with it on a selfie stick and said, ‘GoPro take a photo’ and it did.  WOW, it turned out quite good!

I love Hibiscus and because of our weather you don’t see them here very often, particularly not large ones, these were gorgeous and big!

Hibiscus

Poipu, Kauai, Hawai’i

When I am out taking photos, many times, I carry with me a small spray bottle so when I want to give a fresh, new effect, I can spray water on a flower.  This water livens up the flower and adds so much!  Of course, natures way with rain drops  works the same and is better.  It had rained thru the night, as you can see by the rain drops on this hibiscus.
