Kew Gardens 1

A couple of weeks ago, Harriet and I joined a Cambridge Camera Club outing to the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew.  I hadn't been there for ages, and it was lovely just wandering around in the enormous grounds in the warm spring sunshine.

I'm not quite sure what Harriet was doing in a bush, but maybe she'll tell me one day?

There were a couple of "guardians" in period dress at the main entrance to Kew Palace, and they were not keen on me going inside because of the tripod strapped to the side of my backpack.  As a result I was forced to wander around outside instead.

What follows is a random collection of specimens (animal, vegetable and mineral) in no particular order.

The last couple of pictures from this set are of bark from a rather beautiful eucalyptus tree.

More excitement from Kew to follow...
