    Daniel;
    Quite an interesting account on the Chattooga Conservancy site; thanks for drawing our attention to it! This Fraser guy sounds like quite the attention-seeker, and sadly, sounds like it worked.
    I’m sure many of us have parallels in our own workplace.

    Love the very high quality close up pictures of flowers and leaves. Would like to suggest that a second (perhaps smaller) picture be shown of the full plant with some sort of marker that would give a good indication of size. As a “new to the plant world person”, it would be extremely helpful. Thanks for all the wonderful pictures that are shared with us.

    What a shame you can only dig up derogatory comments of my ancestor, perhaps that he plant collector to the Czars of Russia or that he imported many plants to England from the Carolinas and travelled South America plant hunting. Or perhaps that he was just a Scottish farmers son trying to make good.

    Donald, you’re free to post any links to a more complimentary account of your ancestor’s endeavours. I’m sure people would enjoy the counterbalance.
