Spent a few relaxing hours in Kew Gardens this afternoon, a fabulous treat....

....the entrance, a wonderful display...







....bees were very busy, love these giant thistles....



....beautiful wooden memorial benches....


....first glimpse of the Hive...





.....looking up from ground level...


....wildflower meadow which is part of the installation to attract the bees...






....looking up from the middle with the sound of humming bees...



....the floor in the middle of the structure...


....looking down...










.....loved these grass beds....


....eucalyptus shedding its bark...


....water lily pond....



....inspiration for textile/embroidery work...










.....I came away wanting to stitch and it was great to see so many people from babies to seniors enjoying the sunshine and wonders of nature!
