Kew Gardens in Patterns

It is so tempting when visiting formal botanical gardens to take photographs of the flowers – they are after all the most eye catching and visually pleasing aspect of the gardens.

And I did that the other day when I visited Kew Gardens in London for the very first time. I have loads of pics of poppies, aliums, thistles – you name it. But for this post, I wanted to do things a little differently. In fact, on the day, I decided that I wanted to pay attention to the shapes and patterns that I saw in the buildings and non-flowering plants.

I couldn’t decide whether to use colour or black and white images. For now, I have gone with colour for the plants. There may well be some black and white in a future post.

This image of a palm leaf, is my favourite one from the day – it just seems to glow!


There was so much to see, and even after 5 hours of walking, we still only explored the edges of the gardens and didn’t spend a lot of time in the greenhouses. Lots and lots of opportunities for another visit!
