A weekend or two back, when the sun was shining and it seemed summer was well and truly on its way, we took a day to visit Kew Gardens.
Had a picnic.
Slept in the sun.
I'm aware of how idyllic and clichéd this is sounding. I also had a mild attack of the fears on the tree top walk. Less idyllic.
Kew is undoubtedly worth a visit if you're in London. They are currently running a two for one deal on entry with National Rail tickets. Plus,there are a handfull of nice pubs on Kew Green should you need refreshment on the way home.
I needed it, especially after my brain that decided I didn't like heights only after I'd climbed all those steps to canopy level. Thanks brain.
As a memento I collected a handful of small, but perfectly formed pine cones for crafting purposes.
Some have been reinvented in different shades of blue/gray and
strewn strategically placed about the living room.
