This week I have been attempting to manage my albums but as always when I delve into my photographic archives I am sidetracked by memories, and distracted with ideas for posts. I managed yesterday to limit myself to just a couple of photographs and six words, but today I’m finding that impossible as I have opened the Kew album and discovered all of the ones that didn’t make into #SquareinSeptember.
Wikipedia states there are eight plant houses at Kew Gardens; the oldest dating back to 1761 and the newest opened in 2006. However not all of them contain plants and one of them is currently closed for restoration, so it is probably more accurate to say there are five plant houses.
Plant houses are not the only structures at Kew, there is also the Treetop Walkway. It is 18metres high and the walk through the canopy is 200metres long. I wonder if this would count for Jo’s Monday Walks?!
From the walkway we had planned to head for the Great Pagoda but that was undergoing repairs. There are though plenty of other structures to discover at Kew from the Minka House to Sackler Crossing to the Royal Kitchens. The latter I’ll tell you all about another day. For now I’ll finish with the Bee Hive and a link to Kew Gardens.
