So I didn't set the alarm but woke at my normal kind of work waking time anyway, and got to Kew not for the 8 am members opening, but just before 9 anyway. It was nice and peaceful, and much has grown in the time since I last visited.. sit back, there are lots of photos again.
more irises, this was called Carnival
but the bottle gourds inside the doorway have to be held up in nets to support them
what a treat,
