Kew Gardens Part 3: Peacocks, Rock Gardens & Gorgeous Archways

27 Jun 2014
Hi everyone! My internet is back, I have returned from an amazing trip to Alton Towers for a few days, and I am ready to catch up on my blogposts, read about what you've all been up to, and start writing again. 

I begin with the third and final photos from my day in Kew Gardens, in a post which features my favourite Rock Garden (which is prettier than it sounds, I promise!), the colourful Plant Family Beds and a beautiful Peacock. So if you like pretty photos, pretty flowers, and pretty animals then continue reading...

To anyone who thought the idea of a Rock Garden sounded dull and boring, then just take a look at this.

Words cannot describe the beauty we entered as we walked through this arch. The Plant Family Beds are slightly further out than a lot of Kew's gardens, but because of this they're also incredibly quiet and peaceful - don't miss them out if you visit! 

I couldn't help imagining this as a wedding aisle - how picturesque would that be?!

If you've been reading my blog for a while then you will know how much I adore lakes. They just seem so tranquil and peaceful, and I'm not surprised that I found this beautiful blue lake in a place like Kew.

We passed by a duck nesting next to the lake, and I was really glad to see that the area around it was well bordered off so visitors couldn't disturb it! There were so many ducklings about as well, but they were all busy running about with their mothers, and I don't like annoying the poor animals!

I wanted to end my post and my trip to Kew Gardens with this great picture of a Peacock, because they're such incredible creatures! They're also very photogenic (as far as animals go), which is probably down to the fact that they're also hilariously vain. This particular Peacock was slowing turning around in the middle of a large group of people, all taking pictures and admiring the feathers. He was definitely a complete show off, and provided some great entertainment for his audience!

    1. It's my favourite too! Haha incredible! x

  3. It's weird, I live so close to Kew Gardens but I haven't actually been there yet. I can't believe that lake is there it's stunning. Next time you're down this way if you like beautiful rose archways you should check out RHS Wisley because their's is a treat. I can't wait to go to their flower show in September. I really enjoy your blog.
