Today (day three of the International Weed Science Congress) was field trip day. We started at the botanical garden on the UBC campus, it was by far the best stop. Though, the final stop at a cranberry winery was interesting. Some of the highlights...
Cardiocrinum giganteum - Giant Himalayan Lily
Grows to 15 feet high!
Minotaur and a hare. Statue made of chicken wire and bed springs on loan to the garden.
The final stop. Tried cranberry and strawberry wine, and blackberry port. The wine was okay, but it all had a "fortified" flavor from the large amount of white sugar added for fermentation.
