p&p does kew... part one

California Poppy at Kew
Recently I (Juliet) was lucky enough to venture to London! While I was there I went to the wonderful Kew Gardens. It was my first visit to the gardens and I was almost giddy with delight as we toured the over 300 acres (my feet were less than happy by the end of the day). I couldn't resist sharing some of my favorite flowers with all of you!

A gigantic thistle!

This one was really special. It's a dahlia and the leaves really were black! One of the gardeners told me the variety is named after one of my favorite candies... Twinings After Eights.

The most beautiful anemones
More to come from kew and beyond...
