And we went to Kew Gardens

Because it was spring.

You go through a scenic passover, if you get off the wrong side of the station.

And then there are lots of conservatories.
I mean, I think Their Majesties get bored, and say, "Oh, what say I build another conservatory, over at Kew?"
So they do.

And there are random statues scattered about too.

And many photo opportunities.

There are flowers too.

I had a sausage roll.
Food Of The Gods.

Their tea rooms were all full of squalling infants.
So we hopped on the Tube, and went to the National Gallery cafe, and had The Best Cream Tea Ever.
That is a jar of the best raspberry jam in the world.
And that huge blob on the side of the scone is clotted cream.
You see, you put the jam on the scone, and then some cream…
(eyes glaze over)
Oh, and there's tea with it too.

  10. Oh, I loved Kew! (saw it in June 1988, far too long ago) Did you see the giant lilypads??? They're amazing. I loved the sign "Do not walk on the lilypads".
    I'll have the scone plain please (I'm behaving myself…) and I'll just drool over everyone else's jam and clotted cream… 😉 slurrrrrrppppp…

  13. Hehe! I thought I would talk you out of the razzlebearz jammit!
    Did Sair get a new do? I love it! I'm thinking about going "short" and my hair is very wavy. I like this cut. I hate styling gels and gooey stuff in my hair. This might work for me.
