    That looks awesomely wizened. I hope it’s not someone’s skin… 😉

    OK… here’s the answer you’ve all been waiting for… it’s *drum roll* (sorry getting a bit carried away now!) it’s a Cycad. This one is the oldest (probably) pot plants at Kew Gardens. It’s over 250 years old. Pretty cool eh?

    Thanks for everyone’s lovely comments about the photo – I love the macro setting!

    Thanks for all you comments.
