Welcome to the first entry in UBC Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research's Botany Photo of the Day!
The story: A few weeks ago, Quentin invited Tim Bray and Lauren Wood to visit the garden. Tim and Lauren have visited UBC Botanical Garden in the past (as evidenced by photos on Tim's site), but there's never been any interaction with researchers or staff. We thought it time to change that!
We gave them a rainy day tour followed by a technology chat and lunch. Needless to say, Lauren and Tim are brilliant, and I'm going to incorporate at least some (if not all) of their suggestions in the garden site and elsewhere.
Be sure to check out what Tim Bray wrote about the day in his weblog entry, Melliodendron.
