Waterlily House at Kew Gardens

The Waterlily House at Kew Gardens is very much the lesser neighbour to the magnificent and majestic Palm House, which is my excuse for not going there before. But the advantage of going there so often is that you get to find places like this eventually.

It shares some of the characteristics of it's grander neighbour in that it is made out of cool white metal shaped by Victorians and is bulging with large green things helpfully labelled by people who know what each one is called.

I think the big ones may be waterlilies.
