A look back at Kew

While the snow comes down outside, I am looking through a pile of photo CDs that I found yesterday. In the summer of 2002 my friend Chris and I took a trip to England. We fell in love with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.  Here are a few pictures to warm up with.
The Temperate House is the largest surviving Victorian glasshouse in the world. But I think my favorite is the magnificent Palm House.
Inside the Palm House you might find one of these plants, a tree fern.
And a few other beautiful plants.
Over in another house, The Princess of Wales Conservatory, the Giant Waterlily, Victorian amazonica, from the Amazon can be found. 
Oh, for another trip to England!

  1. The textures in these plants are REALLY exciting! I want to grab them all and make inprints in my clay with them! Neat!
