Dr Glenys Bishop (1996)

In 1996 I spent six months on sabbatical in Edinburgh from Australia. One day my host took me to the Botanics and we entered a temperate glass house, full of Australian native plants. I was overwhelmed with homesickness. I told him that he could go on, I would spend the rest of the afternoon among these plants. It was the first time I realised just how deeply Australian plants affected me. Thank you for such a wonderful display.
