January’s botanical highlights
I’ve not posted for a little while due to slow internet speed for uploading photos, and then family visiting. However, I did want to share some botanical highlights for January.
The Kunkeliella subsucculenta and the Golden Ball (Withania aristata) were seen near the northern coast near Icod de los Vinos.
The Tenerife Giant Orchid, (they stood about 50-60cm high), another very rare and localised endemic, was seen in the pine woods above Chiguergue in Guia de Isora.
