Quite by chance it turned out, my friend Kirsten and her friend Jen who is visiting from California, were heading to Kew today so we arranged to try and meet up somewhere inside!
It was chilly, but lovely and bright as I left home, with a watery sun... which soon more or less disappeared so this (combined with lots of chatting) means lots less photos today!
This bed is obviously marked out ready for some intense planting!
Sun was still out at this time as you can see by my shadow!
In the end I got her number (long story!!) and rang her - they were in the Princess of Wales glasshouse, so headed over there...
where I saw them watching ....
and while I was taking the one of the tree above, Kirsten was taking this..
I love the symmetrical pose we made without realising it! Thanks for letting me use it, Kirsten.
I decided not to go into the Handmade at Kew event taking part so I don't know if it was any good - though from the leaflet I saw on my way out I am guessing I couldn't have afforded to buy anything anyway!!
Hope you enjoyed today's trip..
