Dear Kew Gardens, You are much bigger than I had imagined, and so we only saw a small part really, but another visit soon is definitely on the cards. It’s a shame about the rain, but I suppose the plants benefited. Having not been there for about twenty years, I really didn’t remember any of it at all apart from the palm house (which we didn’t have time to go into)!
Dear drivers, A few good manners and we would all get to our destinations in a better mood. When traffic is very heavy, why is it so hard to let cars in from side roads? You don’t need to let them all in, but if each of us let one car in the traffic would flow more freely and we wouldn’t be sitting for ages going nowhere.
Dear woodpeckers, I happened to have my camera handy this time when I spotted you in the birdbath, but I didn’t want to rush to the window in case the movement frightened you off, so the photos are taken a little way away from it. Of course, typically, you shuffled up together as soon as I switched my camera on, but at least you didn’t fly away immediately. I think you must have been an adult female and a juvenile, because one of you was quite speckled underneath and looked a bit fluffier than the other. I hope you visit again soon.
Happy Friday everyone!
