Today is My Botanical Garden finishing the expedition he was kindly invited on by our friend Rob Viens. Thank you Rob for having us on board with Darwin, Fitz Roy and the Beagle Crew! It was a pleasant journey, we even did not have to fight sea sickness with raisins! And your today post is a great way to remember great spirit of Darwin, born on 12-th February so many years ago!
I and My Botanical Garden readers, we all wish you many more great posts in next years of discoveries with The Beagle Project! And , of course, if there happens to be any chance, we will be happy to join you on Beagle again in next years!
Thank you ,Rob!
