The Grass Borders at Kew Gardens, another part of these gardens that really is at its peak at this time of year. Catching the late afternoon sun, the stems and seed heads are glowing in every shade of gold imaginable. A perfect place to see a whole catalogue of grasses, how large they grow, their colour, their habit – pendulous, weeping, stiff and upright – and particularly how they move in the breeze. A real delight.
