The Picture above shows Mutianyu on the Great Wall of China - we haven't been here yet and probably never will . . .
But I may just be following on the footsteps of my great 19th/20th Century plant-hunting heros, George Forrest and Ernest 'Chinese' Wilson, in 2016 travelling through the Chinese Province of Yunnan (see pic, right). It's been a childhood dream most of my life, so keep your fingers crossed for me - I'll post pics and travelogue here just as soon as I get the go ahead!
In the meantime, we've been plenty of other places - from my time in the Merchant Navy to our most recent visits to Thailand, France & Italy - so click on the 'UK' and 'World' Tavel Sections on the right for some of the results (and rather a lot of plants . . . )
It's a work-in-progess, so don't expect too much yet - I'll be filling in the blanks just as soon as I can.
