that is a labour of love It should be very interesting when established.
I have quite a few books either written or about the plant hunters, we have a lot to thank them for even though they destroyed more than they brought back.
They had to have been extraordinary people ,But quite mad in some cases.

It looks very promising Kath. I agree with Oliveoil - the walls are lovely, so's the paving.
