Thank you, Shelag. Blechnum penna-marina was very abundant and thriving especially in moist forests.

Lovely pictures.  I especially covet the Petunia patagonica.  Sounds like you had a good time and saw lots of stuff.

Did you travel with a group?  I ask because friends just got back from a trip to Patagonia with Ger Van den Beuken.  I wondered if you were on the same trip.

Thanks Jan.

Yes I travelled with Ger's group. We were a nice bunch of people from many countries!
