I am lucky to have Kew Gardens just over a mile from where I live, but I find that I hold visits for treats. I think if I went too many times it just wouldn’t be special.
Mum and I had a free ticket last night so went along (it was an evening event from 6.30pm). We both loved it, as we hadn’t been for a couple of years we strolled around the gardens and did the new treetop walk whilst other visitors sat on the park benches with picnic and enjoyed the cooler weather after a week of very hot, sunny days.
Below are some of the photos that I took on my phone camera. If you are ever in the area or travelling to London on holiday I would urge you to visit. It really is wonderful.
Huge urns with petunias were set around the pound in front of the Palm House:
The Temperate House (in the summer they hold concerts in front of the glasshouse, they are always finished with huge fireworks):
The Japanese Gateway:
The famous pagoda:
