If anyone's interested I could upload some pics from my trip last autumn?

 Yes, please!  :)

I think Arisaema have got most of the plants from the top of ShikaShan - so it's time to move down the mountain again ...

Fantastic pictures, Bjarne, thanks for posting them.
I especially love the Lilium lophophorum and the Cypripediums and the Nomocharis and ........... (all of them)

I had hoped Bjarne would have posted more of his pics so I wouldn't have to post my out-of-focus shots of these Anemones, but I thought they were too nice to skip.

Thanks for posting.

You bring back so many happy memories.  I visited Lijiang the year after the devastating earthquake.

Did you visit the Gang Ho Ba?

To be completely honest I'm not entirely sure if we ever found Gang Ho Ba... :P No one we talked to in Lijiang seemed to have heard of the name, and after 4 days of exploring we decided it was time to head north. We did see Cyp margaritaceum at the river, so we must have been nearby.

And the last pics from this location, the "piece de resistance" I guess... A variegated orchid of some sort, presumably an Epipactis?


Also, do anyone know the names of the tiny woodland Corydalis in 0284, and the larger scree-growing species in Bjarne's 2747?
