Circus Skills!?

At this point you may be wondering “What on earth does circus skills have to do with orchids?”.  Well the honest answer is – Nothing what-so-ever!  But it’s fun (so I’m told!).

Simon Pugh-Jones was previously a circus entertainer and as a result of this, many students learn’t circus skills about 4 years ago.  Today the clubs, balls and unicycle came back out of the cuboard and everyone’s been having a go.

So there, you didn’t expect us to be doing that today!  To be honest, neither did I!

Media Libraries

Granted – the Media Library has been a bit rubbish for the past few months but now it’s new, updated and you have no excuse to not visit it!

We’ve added four videos from the archives as well as Image galleries from our various expeditions, shows etc.  Once I perfect the art of shrinking photos to under our upload limit you can expect a lot more to start popping up!

Have a look around!

Working rain, shine or snow!

Luke Barnes and Simon Pugh Jones braved the snow to care for the plants!

All schools in the south west may be shut because of snow, but writhlington orchid project carries on regardless!  It’s 7 degrees in the cool end but the snow seems to be forming a nice inulating blanket over most of the greenhouse.

The lab is a nice warm 25 degrees but I’m told that doesn’t count!
