So, I came home via Edinburgh Botanics and spent a wonderful weekend wandering around the Gardens and looking at the displays inside and out.

A woman asked me What are those chairs doing? She didn’t seem convinced when I told her imaginary people were sitting on them.
I thought that perhaps the Petrosavialles Family was also imaginary…but apparently not. According to Wikipedia, they are found in high-elevation habitats and have bracteate racemes, pedicellate flowers, six persistent tepals, septal nectaries, three nearly distinct carpels, simultaneous microsporogenesis, monosulcate pollen, and follicular fruits. Sounds interesting. I hope they find a specimen soon.
When we try to pick out anything by itself we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.
