I enjoyed revisiting the gardens via this link. I loved this sculpture, entitled "The Sower". Other highlights of Kew for me were the Waterlily House and the Princess of Wales Conservatory. It was a fine way to end our Spring Garden Tour of England, 2014.

From Flatford, we carried on to the village of Dedham, famous for its creamed teas. The route was over pastoral countryside and we were accompanied by lots of cattle. The creamed tea (tea with scones and clotted cream and jam) was a perfect fix for our two hour walk back to Manningtree Station.

We really enjoyed walking in this town and it was a bit ironic that the old Colchester Castle was about to reopen on the day we were returning to Canada. The public gardens at the Castle were "formal" but the tulips were lovely, and we wandered through old cemeteries and new playgrounds. A good place to visit.
