Kew Gardens

We passed a wonderful day in the Kew Gardens yesterday. I took lots of pictures none of which I can post.
A funny thing happened on the way to the Kew. . . .
I chanced to notice that I had a hole in the seat of my pants, or as they say here, trousers. Fortunately they were black pants and I was wearing black underwear--I know TMI. Fortunately also even though it was Sunday we were standing less than a block from a real, American style mall. So I raced off to look for new pants(I'd only brought one pair assuming that it would be 20 degrees warmer here than it is). It is always hit and miss trying to find your size in an unfamiliar environment but after much ado I walked away with a pair of chic (if I may say so myself) Italian blue jeans. So far no one's complimented me. Guess it never pays to travel with men who take you for granted. LOL.

Hi,
just got your wonderful homemade card in postcrossing, and finding your website in your profile it got me here. ;)
OOh, London is just great. I 've been there a couple of times, though quite some time ago, and it's still my dream city somehow. Hopefully I get to see the photos you take here. Would be great.
Have fun, and a wonderful summer!

P.S. Your new jeans look great on you. ;)
