Kew Royal Botanic Gardens – 1st Gallery: Palm House, Waterlilies, Mediterranean Garden

Kew was one of the highlights of my trip to London last year. I only had one day. It needed three. I took over 400 photos. Some were photos taken for beauty; some for research. Natural history is a great interest of mine and places like Kew are a chance I don’t often get to see things I’d never otherwise be able to travel to see, from parts of the world and ecosystems I know I’ll never get to. For weeks after I got back from the UK, I dreamed I was walking around Kew again. I go back and look at those photos quite often, but for the blog, finally, I’ve chosen just a few, which I’m going to post here in galleries of a dozen or so pictures each.
