Cool UK South-East POTN Member meeting - 2nd August 2008 - Kew Gardens, UK

Hi all!

I arranged a meeting for us South-East-UK POTN'ers to go to Kew Gardens today, and I propose we post our best photos from the trip in this thread/forum ... seems the closest match for the type of photographs we took

Here are my photos!

The ubiquitous group shot:




And here are three of my favourites








Post away guys (and gal!)
