It snowed tonight.

First snow

But before the flakes fell down and blanketed every surface, the grey skies were the perfect backdrop for a visit with some well fed birds at Whitehall Gardens.

… And later it was time for the opening day of the Kew Gardens Tropical Extravaganza — housed in a modern greenhouse built in honor of Princess Diana. Inside, the blooms were stunning — a few pics below. More pics here.

    Pigeons! I love them. They are the most entertaining birds to me.

    Those flowers are gorgeous.

    Me, too — so full of personality, even when they’re just sitting there. And the flowers were stunning in person — I understand why they call it an extravaganza!
