2010-07-25-botanic gardens

On the 25th July 2010 Lorna and I went to visit the Botanic gardens at Cambridge.
The trip and tour were organized by Liz as a fun and educational day out for the East Anglia area Mensans. It was, as you can see a very hot day and like the plants most of us wilted all too soon.
I would have liked to take many more photos but we were rushing round and didn't really have time.

Well a bush actually but that doesn't rhyme.

2010-07-25-0009 It's a tree. We were told what sort but I forgot. The main point was it has several years of cones on the one branch.
