Kew Gardens Glasshouses

Here are some pics I took in Kew Gardens last months on our London jaunt....I have plans for them. My flatmate was whooshing mockingly forward at top speed on one of their zippy little disability scooters, while I desperately tried to keep up with my feeble little pedestrian legs.

I especially love the succulent house and the glasshouses. London always drives me mildly insane and inexplicably eats money, but I love to go there. Just not too often...

Love the rain effect! And the 'frames'. The old corroded rusty structure is amazing.

This is actually the roof. You can climb up the spiral staircase and walk all round the balcony. You can see how high the plants reach here.

I also love the fact that the trees were their natural shapes with branches all the way down and not bloody pollarded to within an inch of their lives.

Love your pictures - have seen tv gardening shows on Kew but never been. Would love to one day.

I'm sure you will someday! I recommend it for sure! (but it's a long walk so it's important to bring a lot of cake)
