The Tropics?

No - the Palm House at Kew Gardens. Last weekend (yeah, I know, I'm Johnny Come Lately when it comes to posting) my Mum and I had a city break in London. On Saturday afternoon we took the train to Kew and believe me, it might as well have been the tropics it was so hot. I don't think I've seen so many pretty summer dresses in years.

You can just see the edge of the Palm House peeping out of the top right hand corner of the photograph above. We only managed a small portion of the whole gardens - I'd like to go back again. On Sunday we went to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in the morning and in the afternoon to the final performance of Latin Fever, starring Darren & Lilia from Strictly Come Dancing. (The next series of which, by the way, I shall boycott if the newspaper reports are true and they are going to get rid of Arlene Phillips in favour of a younger model - good grief, she's only a year older than Len Goodman and no-one's talking about getting rid of him.)

So, nothing on the creative front to report, think I've got ennui.

What a lovely blossom! I love gardens, my favorite is the Buchart gardens in Canada. Heavenly!

I'm glad you are having a fabulously warm summer, cause we are having our coldest Winter since the early 80s down here.
Bright tropical gardens and summer dresses sound inviting!Enjoy your holiday.
