LECTURE - EUROPEAN MOUNTAIN FLORA - scenes and plants
Gentiana verna at the top of the Grand St Bernard Pass, Italy
"While it can be Summer in the valleys high up in the mountains it may still be Winter or Spring, with alpine flowers blooming as the snow melts. The beauty of the plants and the scenery illustrating the perfection of nature. Back home, and often in my garden, I can re-live the beauty of the mountains when I see the plants growing and flowering."
