I spend so much time playing around with photos, er, making gifs (surprisingly a lot of fun) (sorry again for slowing down your computer) that I always forget to write things in blog posts. I’ve just watched Frozen (really good btw) so now I shall tell you all about my visit to Kew Gardens (A.K.A BEST DAY EVAAAAAAA).
Dragged my Mum down to London because my next art exam unit is titled ‘plants’. Obvs, this means I must visit Kew Gardens as its always been somewhere I’ve wanted to visit and of course for research, photos, etc etc, erm. I was living it through Pinterest for a good couple of months but I can confirm, that it is just as beautiful in real life, if not more, and that was visiting in winter too. It was all good except for the fact that I forgot to bring my camera memory card with me (biggest loser over here- EVERY. TIME.) So I wasted a tenner on a new one which was a pain in the bum but I had no choice. The Palm House was my favourite, a giant green house full of tropical plants with old victorian spiral staircases and glass panes, it was hard work trying to put only a few photos in this post as I must’ve taken over 100 in just that place alone. We then headed to the Princess of Wales Conservatory. There was an Orchids exhibition exhibition going on at the time so that was super exotic as well as lots of arranged flowers and lilypads. I would love to visit again in the summer, there are meant to be some giiiiaaaanntttt lilypads that are there. We had a quick wonder around the rest of the gardens but it was grey and rainy so not much fun so we headed to the gift shop (best place, non?) and picked up some postcards of the old vintage posters used to advertise the gardens. Next time you’re in London and/or slightly interested in pretty plants, you. must. visit.
We also visited The Garden Museum too by Westminster, wouldn’t recommend as much- I found it a bit boring!
I would like to be a flower arranger when I’m older.
I have also also come to the conclusion I never had the ‘wild teenager’ stage and instead skipped straight to being like a 60 year old.
now playing: let it gooooooo let it goooooooo
