Leta and I spent most of our time at Longwood Gardens in the controlled environment of the conservatory, while the rain washed the outside.

Each of this cycad’s bright orange cones, each larger than a loaf of bread, is a pollen strobilus.
- My first show to judge for WATCH this year will be The Lion in Winter, followed by Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure.
