Welcome to my plant site! Enjoy some of the finest botanical sites world-wide. This website shows images of many 1000s of different plant species, all taken by me in their natural habitat. Browse through more than 130,000 images to see flowers in close-up, images of a whole plant, other plants growing alongside, and the vegetations and landscapes in which they are present. Also information is given about the best time to see them in flower, and where to go for a fine display. Click the "browse" button to see all images geographically arranged.
