    Looks like the Princess of Wales conservatory at Kew Logan :)

    Went there many years ago when it had just opened, not seen it in all it's glory yet.

    Gosh, Tetters is talented! Congrats on your new helpers. Lovely bloom, @Zigs! I had to put my glasses on to read the name tags on your seed bags. First round I read The-loco-phala, and Mammilaria grusomii. Even for a non-cactus-person like me those names sounded awfully wrong.
