Kew Gardens

A greenhouse built in the Victorian era, now houses tropical ferns.

My mom arrived last week and together we spent our Sunday exploring Kew Gardens, which is a massive stretch of land preserving all sorts of botanical wonders in southwest London.

The purple-est berries I have ever seen.

Cactus in the Greenhouse -- and we're back in Texas.

Carnivorous plants -- these guys eat flies.

The biggest water lilies I had ever seen.
