Dracaena & Echium

I'm back from Tenerife and the most glorious time.

I see you've all been busy, breaking legs, heaving stones and mourning plants! I will catch up better in the next few days and sorry if my current exhaustion has made my sympathy curt.

I'm going to bed now but let me just say that the flora in Tenerife was simply amazing!

Plenty more to follow.
