Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens! Cephalaria gigantea 'giant scabious.' Odd name, lovely flower.

Some huge plant that I haven't been able to figure out what it is yet. It looks a little like elephant ear but the spikes look a little like a Coontie seed pod.

Late breaking news Moira IDs it : Gunnera tinctoria. Also known as Chilean Rhubarb. According to this post might even be edible.

How big? Moira takes a break.

Male torrent duck and chick. The ducks are native to South America.

A black peony. Gorgeous.
