Well, the weather here Portland isn’t exactly get-out-in-the-garden weather, but that’s no reason to not continue on our virtual garden tour of Kew Gardens situated just a short Tube hop away from the heart of London.
The previous two weeks, we’ve roamed around Kew’s Palm House and the other glass houses that are pretty impressive, but the whole point of going to a botanical garden is usually to get outside and look at some plants. So this time, we’re getting outside and roaming the grounds of Kew Garden.
There are dozens of theme gardens within Kew Gardens, and even with a whole day there, I didn’t see all of them, so there’s no way I’m going to try to cover everything in what is meant to be a quick blog post. Instead, let’s just look at some quick facts and then climb up to one of the garden’s newest features: The Treetop Walkway.
