Kew Gardens Treetop Walkway, Picnics & Nom Nom Nom

Looks like the weather today is going to be as hot, if not hotter, than yesterday. On Sunday I was once again in Kew Gardens having a picnic, but my Samsung digital camera finally died on me after about three years hard labour (I'm getting a Canon Ixus in the next few days). It was nice to laze around with papers & a couple of mates - but annoying to only have a camera phone. People often ask me if my Tube pictures are taken using a camera phone - they're certainly not. Maybe it's my phone or my photography, but I find the quality of photos from mobile phone cameras to be pretty pants.

Anyway, a few weeks ago I was in Kew Gardens with my proper camera did the
Kew Gardens Treetop Walkway walk with a group of people including, bloggers Rachel and Francine. The picture below shows how scary and amazing it was:

This picture made it onto Kew Garden's People's Arboretum site which I'm really pleased about. Thanks Kew!

I love Rachel's picture of all the Yummy Mummy buggies parked outside the walkway entrance:

Yesterday's picnic used up even more leftovers from Nom Nom Nom:

Francine had written a funny blog post about Crips and how they would find it hard to get sold in the US:

"the first thing the brand name conjures up in my mind is gang warfare. It's also a derogatory term for disabled people. I did think the baked wheat-potato crisps were a nice, light alternative to potato chips, but I just can't imagine any store in the U.S. carrying these snacks from Derbyshire."

Finally, today is the last day of voting for the participants of Nom Nom Nom - although you still have another week to get entries into the charity prize draw and possibly win lunch in the Tube carriage offices in the sky.
