[OGD] visiting Kew Gardens (UK)

"in London...
go to Kew Gardens...

it cost almost 13 pounds to visit Kew...

a million and more orchids [!]...

Kew Gardens is forced to show off its orchid treasures by... keeping them 
behind glass that is shatterproof and guarded by peeping cameras.
In 1993 a rare monkey orchid [scientific name ?], six feet tall bloomed... 
two security guards had to protect it from greedy collectors...

this garden... was... voted the UK's favourite garden and in July 2003 was 
designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site"
