Kew Royal Botanic Gardens London Proofsheet

A Photo Gallery By Peter Currie

One of the great things about London is space. I have been fortunate to visit on four occasions and never feel closed in. Parks and gardens abound and some cover huge areas. Kew Gardens is about 300 acres. One could spend much longer here than I did in order to take in the enormity and beauty of this wonderful place. Tranquility in nature were my feelings along with appreciation of our planet's living things, many of which I had never seen. Take the District Line and enjoy a leisurely stroll

Caption List:

Photo 1. This image of the Palm House across the lake from the museum. It is so peaceful here. No rush. Just take it all in.

Photo 2. When I reached this treed area there was a sense of calm. A sea of green and a faint breeze carrying the perfumes of many plants and flowers. I sat there for some time and was reluctant to leave.

Photo 3. Across the lake from the Palm House is the Museum. Here there is a plants and people exhibit showing how we rely on plants for so many things, including food and medicine.

Photo 4. My visit was in the month of May, late Spring. There were so many flowers in bloom. This sea of petals is outside the Palm House.

Photo 5. Every park or garden has its local wildlife. At Kew there are many birds. This White Swan came close enough I could have kissed it. Our eyes met and I felt a connection. My web pages have many bird images from here and elsewhere. They are beautiful creatures with lots of character.

Photo 6. Close up image of Orange Lilies. The rich colours are beautiful in full bloom.

Photo 7. White as white can be. Pink and white lilies quite vivid in the sunlight.

Photo 8. One of the urban creatures at Kew is the Brecon Goose. They are quite active and seem to have a few rituals.

Photo 9. One area has many flowering shrubs which create a sea of colour in Spring.

Photo 10. This image depicts a woman's silhouette in the shadows behind a wooden seat and a sea of white flowers.

Photo 11. Canada Geese are very common in many parts of the UK. This one was checking out the scenery among the grass and clover. Had to lie down to get the right level.

Photo 12. The lake area has many items of interest and is as tranquil as you can get. If you like trees there are many great specimens, some probably here when the gardens were opened in 1759.
