Haleigh's Excellent Adventure

Yesterday I went to Edinburgh Zoo’s exhibition The Giant Lanterns of China: Myths and Legends 2018/19. I’ve never been to this zoo, though it is on my list of things to do here in Edinburgh. Since it was night all the animals were tucked away in their beds away from the hoards of people winding […]

If there’s one group of plants that has undergone the most fundamental shifts in perceptions it would have to be the grasses. No-one would have predicted their journey from the suburban lawn ‘Pampas grass’ era (with its hilarious morph into free love torch-bearer) to their achingly hip minimalism of the 21st century.

Looking to the skies, the Mesoamerican peoples all revered the power of the great birds which flew above them, such as the eagle and condor.
