Amazing Plants

Amazing Plants display at Charnwood Museum, another of our favourite haunts. The cafe's good as well.
The museum is in Queen's Park in Loughborough.


Long winter shadows from the sun. It was reasonably warm for January.





Late 19th century botanical models, models used to teach structure of plants in universites around the world.


Flower pressings





Ferns to decorate ceramics, flowers everywhere.


Medicines, we wouldn't have these without plants.


Asprin Tablets made from the leaves of Willows and pill making equipment.



Tabacco and smoking.
