One really beautiful place we went was Kew Gardens. The (very) amatuer photogropher came out in me and I went a bit photo happy. Here are a few of the better ones.
There was a huge tropical house that had some very interesting plants and flowers:
There was a walkway around the top of the green house you could explore.
There was also a water lily house:
And the grounds themselves were incredible:
Notice the eggs in the nest! There were also loads of geese wandering around this pond, who weren't too friendly.
This was a canopy walk that we went up.

Another bird friend I made this day.
My Mom is very into gardening and landscaping so seeing all of the plants and flowers was very exciting for her. I think she was jotting down ideas for her own back yard.
