One fine day at Kew

The 12th September there were clouds in the sky and sometimes the weather seemed threatening, but mostly the sun shone. In London for my sister’s wedding and to house-sit, my wife and I took this opportunity to visit the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew. Here are some of the photos I took that day – and one of me that Agneta took, standing up on Kew’s treetop walkway.

Getting ready for the carnival

Getting ready for the carnival

I just got back from London where my wife and I spent two very full weeks. This was the first photo I took while I was there. The idea of a pigeon dressing up as a parrot for the carnival tickled my fancy — and I thought of a couple of Twitter friends (tWordBird and Squawkingalah). The poster was still up on the wall on several Underground stations, though we’d just missed the reason for it. The caption read: Get ready for the Notting Hill Carnival. 29-30 August. We arrived on 1st September. More from London is likely over the next few days … 🙂
