After dark, we popped over to the Botanic Gardens for a bizarre event called the "Plant Orchestra". The gardens allowed a Bristolian artist to spend several nights wiring up 60 plants in the Palm House to record the sounds they made. He chose the best 15 for the Orchestra. Visitors walk through the Palm House at night and listen to the recordings. The members of the Orchestra have green flashing LEDs nestled amongst their foliage. The banana palm gurgles. The capsicum crackles. The bamboo sounds like the lurching of a distant train. It is a most peculiar experience, and rather magical, especially when you look up and see the constellations of the northern hemisphere through the roof of the hot tropical glass house.
I fear I'm in great danger of settling down.
If you read this far without falling asleep, congratulations! Have some kitten pictures. And a disheveled Catmother.
The belt on your dressing gown is a toy for me, right?
