Kew Gardens Temperate House is the largest Victorian glass house in use today. Its recent restoration is a resounding success as the immaculate structure is glorious. School children filled the walkways as I meandered past exotic blooms, “how many colours have we found so far?” a teacher asked her charges, “seven!” came a confident reply followed by a countdown of colors.

This flower was my favourite. A cross between an exploded firework and a streamer fringed party horn, the velvet white petals stood out against the sea of green.

There is so much beauty to be found at Kew that one day spent wandering through the gardens is not enough.

Kew’s idyllic scenes inspire serenity and a sense of zen–highly recommended for nature lovers and city dwellers alike.
