Ruth’s Dad finally cashed in his Kew Gardens token that we made him for Christmas and we all went for a day trip!
The Incredibles – edible plants exhibition was on at the time…And has been extended until Nov 2nd….There’s an Alice in Wonderland style giant tea-party table laid up with all kinds of edible plants in beautiful containers. Created by Kirsti Davies & Giles Thaxton
Wandering round the grounds we also came across some giant woven/thatched mushrooms….by sculptor Tom Hare.
We filled in our i-spy tree book and learned the names of some of the trees. (that’s cheating really, doing it in Kew!)
We collected some pine cones from the ground and a tulip tree leaf. And we had a long look round the shop – nice postcard!
The most exciting thing about our whole visit was that the lovely lady that served us in the shop was wearing a pair of our Blackbird earrings! She’d bought them from our market stall just the day before! : )
