Over the past two weeks I have had the privilege and joy of guiding sixteen alpine flora enthusiasts to the high country of the top of the South Island in pursuit of alpine flora. On the first tour we all benefitted from working alongside Rebecca Bowater with her fund of alpine flora knowledge

 

Here are a few of the delightful specimens we found in some of the world’s most stunning scenery.

 

Since we have been home my wife Rose and I have been sitting at our kitchen table trying to identify the Latin names for the plants we photographed.

 

I will post more photos as we work our way through our long list of plants.

 

If you are interested in joining our tour for next season by all means drop us line. We are planning multiday and one day tours in Marlborough and multiday tours in northern Canterbury.
