Welcome to the Genetic Jungle. The posts growing here reflect my obsession with nature, technology, genes, gadgets, lists and collections. And orchids, of course. A celebration of the loveliness that is found in nature. The small things and the secret places. It features what we've lost, and what we are on the brink of losing. It is a showcase of our planet and all the exquisite things that inhabit it. It is the poetry of the forest floor. Animal, mineral, vegetable. More coming soon.
