An encounter with a Peacock

I wondered around the very calming grounds of Kew Gardens on Sunday afternoon and I left feeling very relaxed, there is something very comforting about being surrounded by nature and I experienced my first bit of peace in this city for a long time.

I was surprised by how much my encounters with nature remind me of being a young girl, maybe that’s why I feel so happy at Kew. The smell of flowering roses reminded me of making rose perfume at my Nana’s, the lily pond of walks around the park with my family. I also encountered this beautiful peacock, who loved to be photographed, he reminded me of a peacock who hung around the grounds of my primary school called Marmaduke. I think he knows he’s beautiful!
