kew orchid festival 2020

EN: Previous to all this real pandemic starts, in U.K, last year around this date, I managed to visit the 25 annual orchid festival that celebrated Indonesia. at the Kew Gardens. Here you have a link with more explanation about the theme: I was so glad that I was able to see this incredible festival at the Princess of Wales Conservatory. Too bad the picture can’t reproduce the smell because it was amazing, not sure that any perfumes with orchid scent can do that either, so maybe next year in 2022, I can feel it once again.

Before we go deep into the orchid festival, I will start our journey with the pavilion of the Kew Gardens, the Temperate House.
I remember that it was a cold day, and it took me a while to reach this place. I was pleased to be inside in a warm and humid place. I did imagine myself on a tropical island with a cocktail in my hand😅 . Let me show you some pictures from there so you will believe me, and why not transport yourself on an island. At least for many of us, just this type of exercise will help us feel closer to a trip anytime soon!

Ok, after some warm-up, I continued my “expedition” to the orchid festival. I knew there are many orchid species, but I never imagined there are so diverse, so coloured, so eye-catching, so beautiful, and so incredible wonderful smelling. Here there are, tell me if they are not great?!

Till next year, because this year festival is postponed, when the theme is Costa Rican, paradise and I hope I/we can enjoy the exhibition, let’s appreciate some of the views of the outside!

RO: Inainte ca aceasta pandemie sa devina asa reala si sa fie resimtita, si aici in U.K, anul trecut in jurul acestei date, am reusit sa vizitez al 25-lea festival al orhideelor, cu tematica Indonezia, la Gradinile Kew. Aveti aici un link cu mai multe explicati despre tematica aleasa: Am fost foarte fericita ca am reusit sa vad acest festival incredibil la pavelionul Printesei de Wales dedicat conservarii. Sunt “dezamagita”ca pozele nu pot reproduce mirosul, deoarece era minunat, nu sunt singura ca exista vreun parfum care sa aiba esenta de orhidee si sa reproduca mirosul simtit, asa ca sper ca in anul viitor il voi putea resimti din nou.

Inainte sa pormin intru totul la festivalul orhideilor, am sa incep calatoria cu pavilionul Temperate House al Gradinilor Kew. Imi amintescca era o zi foarte rece, si mi-a trebuit ceva timp sa ajung la acest loc, asa ca am fost extrem de multumita ca am intrat intr-un loc cald si umed. Mi-am imaginat ca sunt pe o insula tropicala cu un cocktail in mana😅 ! Desigur, sa va arat ceva poze din interior ca sa ma puteti crede si de ce nu sa va imaginati si voi ca sunteti pe o insula cu un cocktail in mana. Cel putin pentru multi dintre noi, doar acest tip de exercitiu ne-am mai ramas, sa incercam sa ne simtim mai aproape de o calatorie cat mai curand!

Bun, dupa ce ne-am incalzit putin, am sa imi continuii “expeditia” catre festivalul orhideelor. Stiam ca sunt numeroase specii de orhidee, dar nu mi-am imaginat niciodata ca sunt asa diverse, asa de colorate, asa de minunate si asa de frumos mirositoare. Uitati-le, si acum spuneti-mi daca nu sunt extraordinare?!

Pana la anul viitor, deoarece festivalul de anul acesta este amanat, pe cand tema va fi paradisul din Costa Rica si pe care sper ca il voi/ vom putea vizita, sa ne bucuram de peisaje exterioare!
