Ham House Anna Karenina Academy Awards Les Miserables Kew Gardens Lady Catherine Best Costume Design

Back from a wonderful weekend in Richmond, where we had blue skies and sunshine for much of the time and it was surprisingly mild for the start of March. On Saturday we went to Ham House to see the Anna Karenina costume exhibition. The house itself was lovely and so was the garden - it had a pretty little wilderness of which Lady Catherine herself would have approved! The costumes were interesting and the staff were very helpful. Then on Sunday we went to Kew Gardens and managed to catch the last day of the orchid exhibtion, which was lovely. There's nothing better than a bright display of exotic, colourful blooms. Outside, the crocuses were out and the daffodils were just coming - although in some corners of the gardens they were already out. In between times we meandered along the Thames, watching the boats, so all in all a very enjoyable few days.
