A couple of weeks ago now we had our “K” date at the wonderful Kew Gardens. The gardens are one of my favourite places, they are a joy to visit all year round, a real oasis of calm and beauty in West London.
For our date, I’d bought tickets for Kew Lates, part of the Orchid Festival, this is an adult only evening event. The orchid festival is an annual event, taking place in February, the greyest month of the year, filling the princessof Wales conservatory with a kaleidoscope of colour.
The theme for this year’s festival was India. The Kew Lates event included live Indian drumming, delicious food, a soundscape of Calcutta, henna art, a chance to try on Traditional Indian clothing and jewellery, presentations on culinary and medicinal uses of Indian plants and a chance to talk to one of Kew’s experts about orchid care.
