Some pictures of the Bonsai trees/plants at Kew Gardens

I promised you pictures of flowers today and, well does a tree count as a flower? We’ll just pretend that they do.

The incredible thing I learnt in the little bonsai shed at Kew Gardens is that bonsai trees and plants are just normal plants grown in special containers and looked after in a particular way, if you took them out of their special container and planted them in the ground they would grow to their normal size.

Going to Kew Gardens tomorrow!

As the title says I’m going to Kew Gardens tomorrow (weather permitting because this is England after all)!

I talked about it in my Around the World Sightseeing Tour stop 13 (check it out here) and I’m really excited. Yes I was meant to go earlier but you know how life has that horrible habit of throwing up random events that force you to change your plans at the last-minute. Plus the aforementioned English weather.

I’ve got my camera on charge ready to take lots of pictures which I’ll upload over the weekend along with a post talking about how, fingers crossed, the day was so check back for that.

I started my story for this months Five Word Challenge, yay me. Continue reading Dave’s log: A day at the park
