Today was the long-awaited Kew Gardens visit. BeausMum, Copperdog, Chicky, LG the L, Liriodendron and YvieStevie travelled from near and far and had a lovely time in the hot sun.

Dove, Wonky and Topbird were missed, but we ate cake on your behalf as promised!

We thought we'd have a new thread for photos, so I'm starting it now, even though my photos are on my camera not my phone so I can't post any until I get home  image.

    The Mods have been alerted and the tech team are looking into it .........

    I hope they realise that it's extra specially important today .......... 

    Thanks so much for eating my share of cake everyone  ...... OH has bought me a cream and jam doughnut for my pudding tonight, just so that I don't feel totally left out .......  image

    We made rather the wrong call on the cakes, I think. The ones where we ate lunch looked AMAZING, but we decided to wait until later. The choice in our later location was much more limited.  Still good, but I think we were all yearning for the ones we'd seen earlier. However, we struggled through image.

    It was so nice to meet you all today, such an enjoyable day out together in the sunshine!  

    Thank you Beaus Mum for organising it.  Liri & Yvie Stevie - hope you're both home too and not too tired as you both had so much further to go.  

    Looking forward to a little rain tomorrow to fill the water butts up.

    So pleased you all had a good day - I trust my cake was either chocolate or coffee & walnutimage

    Hope you all make it home safely (some of you have had a really long day).

    Really looking forward to seeing some photos - hope the tech problems on the site are fixed tomorrowimage
