Kew in the Sun

Kew Gardens is a beautiful place. My Dad came up to visit us and we spent the day enjoying the sunshine and outdoors.
We climbed 18m to walk among the tree-tops:
And met a peacock when we came back down.
We rode on the land-train, fed the ducks, saw a chocolate tree and had tea and cake! Knowledge of the English weather tells me that this is not the start of a non-stop Summer, but on days like today, I cannot imagine the rain and cold. It is just lovely to be out: not learning anything in particular, but being in contact with plants and birds and feeling alive.
