So after yesterday's walk in London and the fabulous Tall Ships, it was back to flowers today!
Still dull (till I left to come home of course, but my feet were starting to protest)... but you can't order the weather sadly.
The Easter event this year (it's been on for a couple of weeks actually) is The Moomins. I loved these stories by Tove Jansson as a child, and so it seems to children today because when I got there just before 10 there was a great long queue waiting to go in.. However, I wasn't particularly going to look for them (which was as well, because I didn't come across them)
I was quite surprised to see that the big beds of red and white tulips I loved so much 2 weeks ago, have already finished - I know tulips aren't the longest lasting of flowers but thought there'd be a few left.
I did find some other varieties though
heading for the Woodland Walk and the bluebells, I came across this - accessed by a wooden ramp - this is new, temporary I think, and is an area where you can meet the Kew scientists. It wasn't open yet
I love the look of it though
Didn't spend as long today, partly because the trains were only half hourly (instead of 4 an hour) and my feet and legs were starting to protest after yesterday.
