Talking Plants shut up, for now

Last week was exactly 14 years since I began my Talking Plants blog (22 November 2008). I've posted at least weekly - and in the early years more often - with only a brief break while leading a tour to Spain a few years ago (when I still posted a few pictures each week in lieu of a full written plant portrait).  In all, 1,119 blog posts, including this one.

I expect I'll return in a few months with more posts, but I'll see how things go. I do think we need social media that is more than a picture, a name and a quirky comment, but maybe I'm misreading that. In any case, my blog remains a useful resource for me at least when I want to check on the finer details of a particular plant or place, or to track down a reference.

In the meantime:


Backson. Prolly.

Thanks Tim for a little lifetime of botanical byways (and highways).
Some real gems amongst those, and always something pleasantly distracting.

Interested to see what the next chapter might cover

Lovely feedback, thanks! I doubt I'll be able to stay away for too long...

This site has useful content. Talking about plants is really important. Because of that, we'll be able to protect nature which we have destroyed so much in the past decades.
