Day 6: Kew Gardens

We visited the UNESCO World Heritage site Kew Gardens, probably the most important botanical garden in the world.

A little something from the rhododendron garden.
Yes, those are actual lily pads. They belong to the Victoria water lily, which I think is the largest variety in the world.
Just a secluded spot in the garden.


  1. They look big enough to go sunbathing on!
    Keep sending the purple, I want to order a poster of the rhododendrons, too...

  2. Absolutely mesmerizing! Those lily pods are insane, Alice in Wonderland-esq, indeed. If only I could set up home and shelter int that secluded spot ... (heavy sigh).
