Gnomon - time to move on

These are the trees that Kew Gardens themselves consider particularly notable. There's probably a Shagbark Hickory in Kew somewhere, as they just about every type of plant there.

MMF - Keeper of Mustelids, with added P.M.A., is now in a relationship.

It's by the Chokushi-Mon Gateway, close to the Lion Gate.

It's the area I frequent when it's school holidays, as the rugrats rarely get that far. Thankfully.
