|The White Way of Delight (or should I say, The Woit Woy of Deloit...)|
|The very tranquil Japanese Garden|
|Garden Pond Eels|
We started the day with a guided introductory tour, paused for a picnic (Camembert and bacon on crusty baguette, roast beef and vegetables on whole grain, strawberries, and freshly-baked pear walnut muffins - I love picnics!), and meandered through about two thirds of the gardens (Kew is HUGE!) before calling it a day. We'll go back in the fall to check out the new colours.
|The Talls... almost tree-sized.|
|The Princess of Wales Greenhouses|
|We've got bluebells!|
|Alpine House, a cool air greenhouse for alpine plants|
|Tall Guy before I woke him up by tickling his face with a leaf...I think it's hometime!|
It's a good size (big enough for a book and my essentials, but not big enough to load up with so much crap it weighs me down), a good colour (soft grey), and it has good straps (it can be a shoulder/arm bag or a cross-body bag). While I'm not quite ready to toss the old favourite, I am excited about this new bag. I'll put it to the test later this week while travelling in Scotland...
