Australia at Kew

I spent Saturday at Kew Gardens with C. and visiting friend J. We wandered across a recent installation of Australian plants. The brightly-colored soil was garish against the steady greens around it, but apparently, this is what Australia looks like. Or at least part of it.

Speaking of Australia, lots of the universe's missing matter has been found there.*

I visited that part once with an Australian colleague. I found her laughing hysterically at one patch - I think it was Kangaroo's Paws - that was being so carefully nurtured when her father spent most of his time in the garden trying to get rid of them.
