- dark evenings and concert goers possibly fuelled with booze don't mix with water!!
walking up the steps to go inside, was FABULOUS ... I should have taken off my shoes and paddled on the steps, as there was enough gathering water...
for a while (the label says its a Catalpa) the flowers were pretty
Luckily, there was a slot available for 11 am so not long to wait...
none of the windows open though for security purposes, they don't want visitors hanging out to take photos and falling out...
I only paused on floor 4 on the way up for a quick breather -
I stood still for a while so my knees could stop trembling fromthe climb!
and it doesn't help that of course I am shooting through the windows so there are reflections too
an another one
a glimpse of the Temperate House on my way to the Treetop Walkway...
wasn't sure if my legs would carry me up the stairs...
so I was delighted that the lift was working!
I did walk down though
I walked back down and went for another cool down standing by the sprinkler, and then sat outside the Temperate House
I could hear the music for Cirque Bijou, there was a different cellist today,
and I stopped to watch, but I am not sure if they were just practicing with the new cellist as it didn't seem as polished as usual...
waterlillies in the rill outside
stopping for a gorgeous ice cream to cool me on the way to the station
thanks for looking again
