It’s been a little while since I have been able (or willing) to do an exploring blog post, but in the interim time before the world began to get messy again, I took a trip that I can’t help but share with you. Since gaining some Youth Funding from Kew Gardens last year to carry out a mini project, I have been on the lookout for the perfect time to take a visit to the place that had faith in my ideas! An outdoor garden that holds the incredibly important collections of plants and fungi, and somewhere that was a great choice for a day out in these times.
We has such a lovely day exploring, with my personal highlight being the world renowned glass houses full of endless green treasures, something I have endlessly admired in books and magazines. I thought what better way to share the beauty of the place with you than through photographs from the day. It is somewhere that, when the time is right, I encourage you fully to take a visit and take it in, in all its wonder.
For anyone who might be thinking of visiting currently, we felt incredibly safe all day. We drove and parked in the onsite carpark, waited in a manned and well distanced queue for our pre-booked time slot and inside the gardens it couldn’t be easier to keep to your own space. The glasshouses are manned by staff making sure there aren’t too many people inside and masks are worn in all the indoor areas. They are doing an excellent job.
So, there we have it, my little visual diary of one of the last days of summer spent at Kew Gardens. It is such a beautiful place that I can’t wait to go back to one day for even more exploring, don’t you think it will look lovely as the trees start to turn for autumn?
