a summer’s day at Kew Gardens

Last summer I went to Kew Gardens and accidentally took photos on a roll of film i had already used in Perth, this year I made the decision to use my phone and my Instax Mini – no chance of overlapped frames here! When I told Eleanor of the long list of places you can go for free when you work at V&A we decided on the next sunny and warm day we would use this power to visit Kew Gardens. We walked for miles, saw many beautiful vistas, made friends with a duck, smelt lovely roses and were completely exhausted at the end of the day.
