#ASKALFRESCO – SPRING
Hey Sarah. I’m a girl who likes nature very much. I also love the feeling of staying natural. I believe it must be one of the reasons that I love Alfresco! Alfresco can always make me feel natural and elegant. Just like what you said, “beauty without bites”. I should thank my friend for introducing Alfresco to me. The spring is coming. Did you go somewhere to get close to the nature on the weekend? Enjoy your day. :) Kind regards Cathie ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hello Cathie, Thanks for your letter. Same as you, I also like being natural. That is one important belief when I created Alfresco perfumed natural bug repellent. It is a Deet Free insect repellent and leaves your skin feeling natural - and bug bite free. It is getting warmer in London, and we had several sunny days recently. It is a perfect time to get out and walk around London. I really like to get some fresh air outside…enjoy the blue sky and beautiful blossoms. I went to Kew Garden last weekend. It is a botanic garden in south west London. It was amazing! I love it so much. Here are some pictures that I took in the garden.
Also, Alfresco anti-bug bite botanical blend was inspired by the work of Sir Joseph Banks (1743-1820), who was an English Naturalist, botanist and patron of the natural sciences. What needs to be mentioned is he was a key figure at the Chelsea Physic Garden and also Kew Garden in London. A little bit intro of Kew Garden. It houses the "largest and most diverse botanical and mycological collections in the world". Founded in 1840, Kew Garden has more than 30,000 different kinds of plants in the living collections, while the herbarium, which is one of the largest in the world, has over seven million preserved plant specimens. Kew Gardens, together with the botanic gardens at Wakehurst Place in Sussex, are managed by the Royal Botanic Gardens.
It is a nice place and definitely worth going. In the garden, there are many glasshouses. Each of them has a different, maintained climate, designed to nurture everything from the world’s largest water lilies to delicate Alpine flowers to tropical blooms. The most exciting attraction for me is the Tree Top Walkway where I got a bird’s eye view of some of the park’s centuries-old trees. It was thrilling and interesting! Then I strolled down to the Chinese Pagoda, built in 1762. Towering over the southern end of the Gardens, it must have been an awesome and strange sight to eighteenth century Londoners.
