I think I'm fucked.

I bought my second Begonia today.

Last week I saw a begonia in the "jungle room" at a botanical gardens and it must have been at least 20 feet tall. It was very cool.
oooooooo.
After many years of intending to I finally visited Kew Gardens in the outskirts of London, due to an Islamic music festival (which was superb). The Gardens are amazing, especially the tropical and desert houses. Astonishing plants, and I got to see salamanders for the first time.
Ooh, I love salamanders. The Smithsonian (in Washington D.C.) didn't have any animals that I saw, but recorded tree frogs in the jungle room for atmosphere, I guess. I didn't see the desert room there, but they had a very interesting exhibit of medicinal plants. Of course, the one I liked most wasn't labeled, so I'll have to go browse some books to see if I can find it.
