Gardens and Google

First up, the astronomy picture of the day is a garden - a galaxy garden in Kona, Hawaii. There's a lot more about it here, with an explanation of the layout. Just to give you an idea of how big the real thing is, our sun and most familiar stars we can see are on the same or neighbouring leaves.

This leads me into the amazing Garden of Cosmic Speculation in Scotland which takes science and maths as its inspiration. It's only open one day a year so I'll never see it. The people at CERN however are talking about making a replica there.

And the Google logo for today (the 19th, where I am) is a still life in the style of Cézanne for his 172nd birthday. Someone did a pretty good job on that.
