Layered

Over at Kew Gardens, there is always something to enjoy afresh, or anew.  Grasses apparently cover around 20% of our planet, but there is no element of boredom when you admire the Grass Garden that houses over 550 examples.

Now until winter is a great time to revel in this section of Kew, as the plants flaunt their feathery seedheads, frolic in the wind and dress up in their autumn colours.

The Grass Garden is in the north-eastern corner of the gardens (map here) close to both the Victoria Gate and Elizabeth Gate.  I also strongly recommend a stroll across to the Hive – stunning at any time in any light.

  1. This one has nice contrasts between the fluffy and playful plant life in the foreground and fixed structures in the background. Lovely. I remember another post from Kew Gardens from sometime ago that I also loved. Thank you for the entry Debbie.

    1. Thanks Paula. I like that angular conservatory but needed a different approach.
      There is a great mixture at the gardens – I always enjoy a trip there. They have put a lot of effort into making the visits interesting – more than just plants.
