Summer

Summer - 2

Vicia cracca

Summer is upon us! Heaven for a botanist like me, with all shades of green and sparks of color popping up wherever you look.

Summer - 3

Rosa canina

Two consecutive winters of stubborn species studying is now again put to the test, and the results are promising: I think I have never recognised more plant species than now.

Summer - 1

Rhododendron ponticum

Yet the real test is still a few weeks away, when the snows finally melt above the polar circle in Scandinavia. Then I have to know them all, to resurvey the plots we put out there 5 years ago.
