    1. Maureen, it's so nice to see you again! It was a bit cool, but maybe, because of that there were very few people, and I almost had the garden all for myself! Our trip to Europe was in May, and I posted 3 photo-stories then: http://tanyasgarden.blogspot.com/2013/05/3-queens-garden-and-royal-kitchens.html and two others.
      I hope your autumn is warm and dry! Well, mostly warm and dry...

  2. So close up and personal getting to see the details always amazes me.
    Have to say I can't pick one picture as a favorite each one is unique.
    As always thanks for sharing.

  3. The photos are fabulous! Those trees are amazing. They seem to have such personality. I also loved the bird photos, especially that peacock that obviously was quite anxious to be in the photos! :)

    1. Holley, thank you! It was time when I liked mostly flowers. Then came grasses and trees and shrubs and their bark!

  7. I remember visiting Kew many years ago in 1992, I think. I was so impressed. I have a nice photo of the Palm House, and I recall that we had lunch or tea in the Orangery. And I remember being in awe of the old trees. Your photos are fabulous. Thank you for bringing back happy memories!
