The director Dr Patrick Griffith gave me and a visiting cycad paleobotanist Dr Boglarka Erdei a tour of the grounds. Patrick had so many stories to tell us about so many of the plants. It was a true delight to share Patrick's love of the plants and the gardens, and to meet all of the dedicated and friendly staff.
I've put some pictures of some vistas, the master plan for the site, and the critters on the grounds. There will be more on the plants in my next post or two.
