1. Pitcher Plant, carnivourous, a bog plant I know well from the swamps of Canada.
2. Tulip tree, indigenous to my area, and one of the first flowering plants. ever.
3. Pitcher Plant, also carnivourous, from the American southern swamps, grows tall and very beautiful, sculptural.
4. Sweet peas and roses, a traditional and very fragrant mix.
5. The giant water lilies, some of the most famous plants of Kew.

Kew is something special for plant idiots like myself. I will spare you the zillion photos of rare and unusual plants. For now.

These are all such gorgeous shots. I'll second Hildegard. Don't spare us. Please. I could probably run around Kew Gardens for months. :)

It's years since I've been to Kew. I think I need to make 'Gardens' the theme of my Summer Tour this year : )

thank you. I love plants and especially bog plants. The pitcher plants have two feet of glass in front of them so I had to shove my camera over and take a lot of blind shots before I got anything. Kew is a lovely place. However, I think my favourite gardens were the small ones in front of people's houses. The long vistas and clipped hedges are a little too manicured for me.

fantastic staturesque plants and then the lovely mix of sweet peas and roses - which for me are full of warmth and comfort
