We said these leaves were patterned like dinosaurs.
Yes....it's slightly immature...but still amusing.
This plant was, honestly, huge. It also looked like a triffid and scared me.
I was struck by the resemblance of many plants to genitalia...I love nature and it's strange ways.
The tropical room in it's entirety.
A display of various orchids and other plants (my horticultural knowledge is pretty slim).
The size of the trees is quite astounding, despite the rusting metal walkways making me increasingly nervous.
I love the 19th century construction.
If there is one thing I must have in my house, it is an over-grown white metal spiral staircase with wooden handrail!
Perhaps my favourite room of this visit: The orchid house.
So much colour and life, it was so refreshing on a cold, rainy winter day!
This is most definately my favourite photograph, I love the way that the orchids look as if they're clamouring to be photographed, like children...very Alice in Wonderland haha.
