Kew Gardens in colour

Second trip to Kew in just over a month, can’t seem to stay away at the moment! This time, T, Eleanor and Kitty joined me and Annie for the day.

I took two film cameras and tried to shoot the majority of my photos in colour (as I shot mostly black and white last time #, #). I have some black and white photos to share too though.

The outside temperature was a scorching 29°C on the day we visited. Standing inside the Palm House was an endurance test, especially on the upper level. Worth it for the photo above though!

Annie and I completely missed the Temperate House last time. I don’t know how because it’s huge! Although perhaps it’s because we ventured all the way to the creeper house expecting to find plants clawing their way across windows — but found a kids play area instead. I’m glad we found it this time though.

We cooled off in the shade outside Temperate House at the end of the day. T sat in gum and Eleanor helped her get it off. Kitty ate the chocolate from my bag even though it was practically liquid from the heat. Me and Annie tinkered with our cameras and we all fantasised about grabbing something to eat and a cold drink on the way back to the car!
