Typical May bank holiday weather: rain and Arctic winds. Cheer yourself up by viewing a delightful audio slideshow produced by Paul Kerley and Tom Feilden (title link). It shows the new South Africa Landscape which has sprouted in front of The British Museum, London, thanks to some nifty trowel-work by the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. This new display of colourful plants and trees from South Africa’s Cape region is open until 10 October, admission free. Professor Stephen Hopper, Director of Kew Gardens, is your guide.
