This morning I made David Gelsthorpe (Curator of Earth Sciences) spend time in Reykjavik’s botanic garden (only fair after the amount of time we spent chasing ice yesterday!). The arboretum, vegetable garden, lake and rockeries were looking lovely in the autumn sunshine, but I spent most of my time admiring the Icelandic plant species.
