Plant Science 3: Plant Adaptations (Desert Plants)

It's easy to forget the wonderful resources you have on your doorstep. After watching a few of the online BBC clips about plant adaptations it seems only natural to head off to our local Botanic Gardens.

It might be half-term but the miserable weather keeps the hoards of school kids at bay. It's only us mad folks who venture out to a garden in weather like this.

Photos from the 'Arid House'. No titles required, just an opportunity to marvel at the wonders of the plant world.

I hadn't been here since the boys were small but we visited with my mum a fortnight ago and were almost the only visitors.

I've never seen ginger roots growing, nor papaya, nor cotton nor such huge lemons and you are so right that we miss so much that is under our noses right here only a bus ride away.
