Day of the Triffids

Friday, 8 July 2011

Recently a garden I visited had the most enormous rhubarb growing in it, and I always love these sort of giant plants that seem like something out of a fairytale or a science fiction movie.

Lily pads big and strong enough for Victorian gentlemen to stand on them,

rhubarb forests in Helford, England,

big plastic lily type sculptures at the Cavalli fashion show,

and even bigger lily pads on the Amazon, Peru.
