Monet at Kew!
Claude Monet painted a series of paintings of the Palace of Westminster, home of the British Parliament, during his stays in London between 1900-1904 and also spent many hours at Kew Gardens where “the man with the beard and the joie de cacti” became much loved. On Saturday 28th April members of the Cactus Club followed the Monet Trail around the 300 acre botanical gardens at Kew. Despite the rain, the day provided much laughter.
This year’s expedition prize winners were James Allen, James Mitchell and Ben Wall (the current Cactus Club champion).
