Kew Gardens and PRET!


I’ve posted a lot this week, but we had great weather again today and were able to venture out to another hot spot: Kew Gardens. The photo to the right is of the Palm House (a glass conservatory built somewhere between 1800 and 1900). G took some great botantical shots while we were out and we found a friendly peacock.

Also. For those who have visited London and like to cook (NANCY!), I now have a Pret-a-Manger cookbook. If you have a favorite from Pret, let me know and I’ll see if the recipe’s in the book. Our (or should I say MY) favorites like carrot cake, love bars, chocolate brownies and the new jalapeno hot wrap are in the book…

    The Palm house at Kew Gardens was built from 1846-1848. Spot on.

    Nice. Thanks for checking. I started paying attention to the dates in the Termperate House and they seemed to span from the 1860′s to the 1900′s…and the Palm house seemed older.

    Thank goodness the Royals had such grand taste…that’s how London ended up with all it’s great space. Apparently, according to an exhibit at Tate Modern at the moment, 50% of all Greater London is green space. I love the trees!
