Coots, Geese, and Swans
Kew Gardens is a lovely, huge green area with many large conservatories or green houses to display plants from an ocotillo cactus of Mexico and the largest indoor plant, a Chilean Wine Palm, to live butterflies enclosed in a tropical area. We found a Christmas tree sized Douglas Fir on the grounds and looked for the redwood grove, but it eluded us. There was an amazing amount of things for kids to do from taking a tree canopy walk to climbing like vines.
