Wish this was my front door! The iconic palm house at Kew Gardens was built using the most cutting edge tech of its day. Engineers used technology from ship building to create what was at the time the world’s widest pillarless expanse, to showcase all the massive jungle plants in their full glory. That’s why from the outside the glasshouse looks like a giant upturned boat. #kew#kewgardens#palmhouse#glasshouse#jungle#rainforest#horticulturalhappypill
When you can tell how steep the slope is by the way people line up in your photo... My first real trip in the bush in search of a bird of paradise display area one of the coffee farmers had been watching turned into a group outing in a torrential downpour (note: taro leaves make great umbrellas). As I stepped through this incredible, dense forest, I realized my feet - though attuned to many an outdoor obstacle - are not in the slightest bit good at dealing with vines. Here’s to hopefully getting more practice someday! 🌱
