Monday 24th May

Member's Garden Party and Open Day at the National Botanical Garden of Wales. Well, we weren't going to miss that were we? So different from when we visited last. Very green and verdant and flowers blooming everywhere. BUT, as it was a special day, we didn't spend all our time above ground - no - we went on the trip underneath the mediterranean conservatory to see just how they deal with all the water, weather, electricity, waste, emergency lighting etc. Of course, as you can imagine these days a lot of it is done by computer!!

Some of the masses of piping and wiring.

It was actually very interesting but I didn't find out exactly how many miles of electric cable there was.

Everything was meticulously laid out, and colour coded to within an inch of its life!
