Allan Gardens Greenhouse

A few weeks ago I went for a “desperate to escape the misery of winter” excursion to the Allan Gardens Greenhouse here in Toronto.

Click here to see a panoramic photo I shot in the glorious Arid Room.

The thick trunk seen in front [right] is a GIANT pachypodium. They actually cut the spines down — probably to prevent impaling and other potential disasters (those spines are dangerous).
