Cambridge Botanic Garden has some brilliant glasshouses that allow you to stroll through different parts of the world and experience the flora.
There are beautiful flowers , wonderful leaves as well as peculiar and weird structures to find.
Here is a short tour of some fantastic specimens today.
A pitcher plant , destined to trap insects in order to digest their bodies for nutrients.
Tiny beautiful flowers in the very centre of this bromeliad in a pool of water. All it was missing was a tiny frog to live there.
Leaf scars up the stem of a palm .
Gorgeous heavily scented flowers with amazing stamens , unusual petals.
Scarlet Passion flowers.
Star fruit, they look amazing , they are disappointing to eat ,rather bland .
I loved this amazingly long stigma on this flower almost like a trunk!
A trip to the glasshouses is full of discoveries. There is a cacti house an alpine house. Oceanic Island, tropical, temperate house and more.
It’s £6 for adults and definitely a great place to explore.
