The Water Lily House at Kew Gardens – a treasure house

The Water Lily House at Kew Gardens was hot, humid and full of treasure yesterday – a mix of the most delicately coloured water lilies – Nymphaea – and also some with the brightest and richest jewel colours. Bold leaves and bold variegation too – set against black, still water reflecting the Victorian architecture of the glasshouse. A perfect 10 minutes (which happily was enough; can there be 110% humidity?)

    It is so interesting to see so many different varieties. They are all beautiful. We have the wild ones in the river which are really pretty when they are blooming.
