London: Kew Gardens

I have never been to Kew Gardens in London before. It is a huge park as you can see from the map. It was absolutely pouring outside so we have a lot of shots of the indoors. This is inside the waterlily house. A brief respite from the rain and we wander the vast outdoor area. The treetop walkway is great fun and a bit alarming as the floor is made from metal mesh you can see through and the whole thing sways with the trees. Looking up at it from the ground. The giant indoor greenhouses are all glass and have upper walkways over the whole garden. We spot a couple under two giant flowers. And their little pixie! Here is someone else's photo of what the greenhouses look like from the outside...in winter...with a skating rink.
