I've been wanting to visit Kew Gardens for decades . . . and even spent hours at their website. However, I was unprepared for how large the Royal Gardens are and how beautiful. Unfortunately, the Temperate House is closed for restoration. No worries, there is plenty more to see. Together, we make our way to the Palm House Parterre — a confession, I love conservatories . . . the plants, humidity, earthy smells are all stimulate my senses. No sooner do we get there and it is clear that we need a rendezvous plan to meet around lunchtime, as I will be photographing for some time. Trust me . . . there are scores more!

Whats App is our way of communicating that I am (finally) on my way. Once we are all together, it is decided to have lunch at the Orangery Restaurant. Our route takes us past the Woodland Garden and the Princess of Wales Conservatory with an aquatic display. Much to our delight, the food looks and tastes yummy!
Over lunch we make a plan of what to see, as clearly to see Kew properly would take a week or more!
