What a paradise - many plants are totally unknown to me.
Thank you so much for showing.

Yes, so many unfamiliar genera.  It was good to see a couple I recognized - a violet and a buttercup.

[Jasmin]:  Yes, Thank you so much for including the little movie.  The only disadvantage is I enjoy lingering with images as I do with photographs!
