I'm possibly one of the worst bloggers - I'm SO behind!
All the way back in June (!) me and Gareth had finally shook off my birthday hangover and decided to enjoy the sunshine at Kew Gardens (a beautiful botanical garden here in London), which is one of those "We should go to this place" places that... you only go to after years of saying it.
The particular day we went was the day after my birthday (luckily two days after my birthday drinks, we'd had a whole day to sleep THAT hangover off!) and just so happened to be one of the most beautiful, sunny days we'd had. Somewhat luckily for us it wasn't too hot - those glass houses were certainly steamy!
The day, and Kew was absolutely beautiful. It was a place I'd never been to before, but one of Gareth's favourite places in the whole of the country and even though we missed the bluebell walk, the entirety of the gardens and the glass houses were gorgeous!
My particular favourites were the area by the pagoda that had a scaled Japanese shrine and zen garden - and the Orchid house! How I love an orchid.
Hilariously enough, I spent most of my time working out what flower I wanted as a hair clip next...
