Midweek colour

Seen on the tube:
  • a tall, willowy young woman with bleached-white hair cut in a thick fringe, carrying an enormous pink leopard-print bag
  • a man in open-toed sandals, trying not to sneeze
  • 3 men with brown, soft-leather messenger bags
  • a young woman with bright purple tights and 3 inch heels poking out from under her black burqa
  • a man wearing a beautifully cut brown suit
Seen (and smelt) at Kew Gardens:
  • pink roses
  • red roses
  • peachy roses
  • yellow roses
  • big blowsy roses
  • white roses
  • and a small selection of aphids and ladybirds - because nobody's perfect, not even the roses at Kew Gardens.

  1. Oooh you took some gorgeous photos! And I still can't get over how lemony some of the roses smelled. Such a fab day :)

  2. good grief, roses already.... no sign of them here....

  3. The second one, the second one - is it Gentle Hermione? Because if it is, we have it too and it smells like Turkish delight.

    The roses have literally burst into flower this week.

  4. I'm sunburnt! I have a White bit in the shape of my necklace!

    Love your pics. I felt inspired to garden when I got home and started by cutting the grass, which was long overdue.

  5. Sunburn? It's thrown it down here most of today. Pah.
