The Palm House
In the village of Kew
The Rhizotron walk in the Treetops

Atlas Cedar, see Buck at the base?
Buck loves the Waterlily House
Princess Diana Succulent House
Finally in South Africa, Clos Malvern winery near Stellenbosch
A beautiful setting and a fabulous lunch, 4 courses pared with wines, 2 1/2 hours, I could still see to drive
One of our favorite wineries, in business since 1699 - Muratie
We left with a case of wine. Our fault for arriving after closing, the head of the company poured our tasting.
