A Spring Trip to Kew Gardens

A Saturday in spring with blue skies and no set plans  - perfect for a family trip to Kew Gardens.

So a couple of weekends ago that's just what we did. There we all are...

We made a picnic and cycled down, over the river - and my main aim was to see the glorious crocus carpet - and to be able to get some photos like this.

I think this is one of Hugh's photos (better credit him or he'll point it out later).

We were treated to blue skies all afternoon - we spotted blossom and daffodils - plus the last of the snowdrops.

It only feels like yesterday that we were reveling in the autumn colour at Kew... but I'm glad to see the back of winter, even if it does feel like time is racing by at the moment.

It's days like this that make me so grateful for our London life. We love having Kew on our doorstep - I'm hoping to get there in the next week or so to see the magnolias in bloom. Where do you go for your dose of spring in the city?


  1. Utterly lovely, love the Spring light. It is year since I've been Kew, it's on my wish list again.

  2. Hi Alexis,
    I'd like to get in touch about a craft project for a well known brand. Do you have an email address I can contact you on?
    Love your blog by the way, Kew Gardens in one of my favourite places to spend an afternoon.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Best, Melissa

  3. what a beautiful sunday outing ! I love your colours, the crocus of course, but also the last picture ! I remember a beautiful day in Holland Park among the daffodils. Kids are so happy to be out again !
