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?)
One thought on “The Water Lily House at Kew Gardens – a treasure house”
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.
