I made my second trip to Kew Gardens on Sunday. Last time, when I went with work, I didn't get to see much because our group was mostly kids and elderly. Early autumn wasn't the best time to visit anyway.

Kew yesterday was completely different. It was a great time to visit, especially for tulips, azaleas and rhododendrons. Bluebells carpeted every shady spot...

and Golden Pheasants were eating them!

Was a romantic date?? =)
And to preempt any comments from LPCB, yes I *have* to spin a romantic angle on all things.

wow - lovely photo of the pheasant!!

is it me or does its head resemble a chicken chicks head?

Well the pheasant did get pretty close but I think it may have been hoping I was going to feed it.

Yes, it was quite chickenish... I was wondering how it would taste.
