Zoom In | Zoom Out

I took The Boy Child and Granny to Kew Gardens todays for the annual Orchid Festival.
It has to be said that The Boy Child is not really a fan of Kew; he moans at every opportunity.
I live in hope.


 Zoom In | Zoom Out is the brainchild of Helena.

I do love orchids, so next time you go, can I swap places with The Boy Child please?
Great photos!

My two weren't that keen on being dragged their either. They've both improved with less moaning but still aren't thrilled.... I'm hoping to go to the festival, just depends on timing and weather.

I would so love to get to Kew for the festival but I can look at your beautiful photos and my own new scented Valentines Orchid. Fabulous ZIZO's Ruth.

Haha - this reminds me of a time, long ago, when my mom and brothers came to visit and we dragged the boys through the Desert Botanical Gardens. Mom and I loved it, but the boys complained the entire time! Ah...memories... ;o)

Beautiful photos, and I LOVE those mushrooms!!!

Aren't these just stunning? I love that close up of the mushroom ... (Ours used to complain about going for walks in the countryside. First thing they want to do now when they come home? Yep, get their walking boots on. There is hope!)

Orchids are a favorite of mine to photograph---your photos are lovely, and those mushrooms are awesome.
