Orchid Festival at Kew Gardens


Orchid Festival

Kew Gardens is such a special place for me to visit every year. On 9th Feb. this year there was a four week celebration of Orchids held at the Princess of Wales Conservatory called Orchids Extravaganza which was extended till Mothers Day. 17 Mar 2013, by Menora James.

This exhibition gave us the opportunity to walk through archways of ornate flowers and to look at the towering pillars of stunning floral displays.
