Lazing on a sunny afternoon

A very nice day on Saturday, so took a trip to Kew Gardens, and walked for miles… Always very strange when you end up in a park in London (or any other big metropolis), becuase you catch bits and pieces of the city through the gaps in the borders: a skyrise at the end of a path, or in Kew’s case, a 747 rumbling overhead (it’s underneath the approach to Heathrow). Anyway, stretched my legs and the Optio’s, and got some pretty good pictures of the Waterlillies. They’re in a special greenhouse built in 1852 and cover the inside. If Miss Havisham kept tropical plants, that’s what it’d look like.
