London, England: The Orchids Festival At Kew Gardens in Richmond
When it's been really cold and gloomy all you want to do is find somewhere warm and colorful to refresh. Mid-February is that time of year when winter is starting to drag and you need something to keep you going. Lucky for us—and you—the Orchids Festival is currently taking over the Princess of Wales Conservatory at Kew Gardens. It was a no brainer to add it to our list to check out this past weekend knowing we had some free time on Sunday. After an easy ride over on the overground and a short stroll to the elaborate greenhouse, we were finally in what felt like a tropical paradise.
