A detour to meet some dead plants

We have made it as far as London.  We have met with our forth team member Lauren and will be heading to the airport very soon. Lauren took us to see the Kew Herbarium where she works. It is the worlds biggest collection of dead plants …wow! In the photo you can see us looking at one of them. To find out more about the Kew Herbarium you could check the website.
