The Waterlily House at Kew Gardens is a small tropical greenhouse built in 1852. It showcases a variety of waterlilies, ferns, papyrus and hanging gourds. Besides the lilies themselves, I was particularly intrigued with the waterlily buds, either submerged in water or looking otherworldly in subtle pastels and an abundance of tiny spines.
I never knew that water lilies came in such a variety of colours. I must say that this is one of my most favourite photos…the flowers. There are quite a few fairies in England! I will share them with upon your return…
[…] House nearby, probably my favorite part of this expedition. Be sure to check out the pictures in my Kew Garden Waterlilies […]
