During a recent jaunt to London I was able to spend some time poking around Kew Gardens, the marvellous botanical garden that houses a breathtaking collection of plants from across the globe! I completed a placement here in my first year of the Careership (pre-blog), and consider it to be a truly wonderful place; something of a haven amongst the smog and litter of our bustling capital. Unfortunately, due to terrible planning and foresight, my camera battery bid me adieu rather early on during the visit! This led to selective photography, firing the blasted thing up with fingers crossed when I stumbled upon something interesting. What larks!

Fortunately I will have an extended period to capture more images of this glorious garden, as I will be starting there in September as a student of the Kew Diploma in Horticulture! This is another three year training course, joining practical experience with academic endeavours. More information can be found here.
