On Saturday we took a drive to Kew Gardens for the day, and what a fantastic place it is, all 300 acres of it. Almost incomprehensible when we looked at the plan of where everything was.
The boys were very keen to do the tree-top walk and as the lift had broken we walked up the 108 steps to the top (approx 60ft). Anyone who know me, knows that heights are not my thing. I wasn't feeling too great walking up the steps as you could see through them to the bottom! Then getting to the top, the walkway was also see through (albeit little holes). That was enough for me, I had to make my way down - what a wimp!
The photo's are courtesy of hubby and the boys!
The glasshouses were incredible. The largest being the only surviving Victorian glasshouse structures. Those Victorian's were impressive! Isn't it fantastic?
I think one of our favourite items was the lily pad glasshouse - look at the size of these lily pad leaves, you could almost sit in one.
This one here is upside down to show everyone the fantastic structure of them.
Another glasshouse held an array of butterflies. The sizes and colours of them are like nothing I've seen before. As always, photo's don't do the enormity of them any justice.
Whilst we were there, I did pop into my favourite fabric shop, so I'll share with you what I bought, later on the week.
Have a good day!
