Carol Govan's Blog

Carol's new blog is It's a challenge to imagine anyone having as much enthusiasm for the process of discovery in botany as she has! Carol loves exploration, learning, recording. Her blog is packed full from her amazing body of knowledge, with spectacular sketchbook paintings and illustrations, photos of varied habitats and plants, microscopic views and explanations of various plant parts, and fascinating general information. Carol's inspiration, good humor, and warmth shine through it all, just as in the classes I took with her, which were a wonderful, joyful adventure.
