So Julia took me to Kew Gardens today. I can tell you now, as a gardener and a scientist, to be taken around Kew by someone far more experienced both as a gardener and as a scientist is a hell of a thing! I probably picked up as much in an afternoon as I might in a month of books! I'm tremendously grateful for the experience, and if someone ever offers you a similar afternoon I suggest you take them up on it.
I has a happy :)
