Kew Gardens

A pleasant day spent in Kew Gardens with colleagues as an away day from work. The weather was beautiful as we sat on the train for half an hour outside Gunnersbury due to a buckled rail. Anyway we got to Kew and the first thing I saw was a horse and carriage driven by a good looking bloke in Jodphurs and hunting boots. Why he was wearing these when he wasn't sitting on the horse I don't know, but they looked good on him so I suppose...

After a picnic and team building exercise it was time to walk down to the Palm House and have a look in there.

The Palm House contained some very big palms and a beautiful marine display. It was fronted by stone efigies of the kings beasts. After the palm house I had a look round the lake which was most enjoyable.
