Australia

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.*

* York contemporaries of mine, please do admire who appears in this article!

Bits of us are definitely that colour (near me, in fact). Me, I'm looking forward to seeing exotic plants in their native habitat when I visit. Hawthorn, cowslip - that sort of thing. I'm especially looking forward to squirrels.

This. I loved seeing oaks, and knowing that gorse was allowed, and not a noxious weed!

Heather as a plant and not a girl's name! Bluebells in woods. The stuff of dreams.
