This is a blog post about another blog post I wrote nine years ago. It’s only really of any interest to me. You might want to wait until the next book I haven’t read.
We went to Kew Gardens the other day. It was a nice day out.
Nine long years ago I wrote a review of the treetop walkway which I mistakenly called the Rhizotron because I had no idea what Rhizotron meant or that there was a Rhizotron right next to the treetop walkway which you don’t know is called a Rhizotron because no-one knows what a Rhizotron is. Apart from science types, apparently.
It’s still there and it still looks good. Better even, blends in very well with the actual trees. Is fun. Pictures are bigger on blogs these days.
We also saw the Sackler Crossing by John Pawson. It’s a clever design which acts as a bridge but looks all elegant and clever. Don’t read a sarcastic tone into that - it’s great.
And then there’s this thing called The Hive which is all about the bees, because bees. Anyway it looks awesome and is fun for all ages to climb on which is all I ever want from these things.
We'll definitely go back in 2026.
