What have we been doing since we came back from Australia ?

On Sunday, the weather was beautiful, so we went to Kew Gardens. We had the loan of a five month old baby for the weekend and so we were very happy! Practicing grandparents. :)

Another reason we went to Kew, was it was the annual Orchid Festival.

Colour co-ordinated!

Pink Pineapples?

Didn't think it was as good as last year but still beautiful. 
Back outside again!

Spotted this Peacock by the lake. Lots of people didn't notice him and just walked straight past him!

Then we left Kew Gardens, going home via Richmond Park. We saw very few deer but a lot of water, not surprisingly!!

Then we got to play again, with our little bundle of joy!!

My first day!

Then it was on to Sydney to visit my son and his wife and to meet up with our daughter, as well. A Family Christmas. :)

Hello son !

Suntan Mother ....Factor 50!

After unpacking .... to the beach! look at that sky ... so blue !

Then l went for a wander!

Look what l found under the stone .... don't know what insect is involved.

Then found this beautiful lichen ... never seen blue or red before!

Just so many amazing colours.

Here is my son's dog, Alfie. He is so beautiful and so much fun.

Then we all went for a walk ... such an amazing beach walk.

What is my husband looking at ?

Wow !

Oh ... look what l can see. Isn't he beautiful?

Then it was off to have a meal. Look at all these children and the noise .... wow!

Unfortunetly The Boat House was shut! So no food! :(

Have you noticed the net? ... now l wonder why they needed that round the swimming area? Ha! I think the word is Sharks!

Have you ever seen beautiful insects?

I am loving my visit and this is just the first day! :)
