Hello September you gorgeous month, I always have high hopes for you, lots of dahlias, a beautiful scent in the air and leaves turning beautiful coppers and reds.

D I P T E R O C A R P U S . My attempt to imitate the dispersion of winged Dipterocarpus seeds falling from the canopy above - naturally they fall from a much greater height. Next time I will go climb higher for more effect! #dipterocarpus #jungle #mybotanicaladventures #langkawi #jungletrek #botanicaladventures #seeddispersalbywind #seeddispersal

C I V E T . Scat remains of Malaysian civet. The seeds are from fruit off a Liana. Civet coffee or Kopi luwak goes through the same process. The beans collected from the scat are highly prized but apparently they make a pretty shitty cup of coffee. #malaysianflora #edibleplants #mybotanicaladventures #foraging #kopiluwak #kopiluwakcoffee #malaysiancivet

Reading this book in Malay is going to prove a challenge but it has an index of Latin names and the pictures are great which makes it easy to ID specimens #botanicaladventures #mybotanicaladventures #edibleplants #foraging #malaysianflora #huntergatherer #foraging @thedatailangkawi

F R O N D E S C E N C E . We have four vast Ficus retusa trees in the gardens at Maduma. My grandfather Bert Honey was an avid tree planter and he grew them from truncheons taken from a tree on Orange Grove drive. they are roughly 60 years old now and are absolutely vast. When I was 20 I set up my first company offering Landscaping services in Harare. I cut my teeth on at home underplanting these Figs with the majority of the plants used taken from friends gardens confining my grandfathers planting legacy. Over the last couple of decades my Ma has extended and embellished the original planting. #frondescence #verdure #green #foliageplant #leaves #mybotanicaladventures #landscapephotography #landscapedesign #monsteradeliciosa #monstera #dracaena #ferns

G A R D E N I A . carinata deconstructed + a red weaver Ant (Oecophylla smaragdina) Unwittingly I disturbed a red weaver ant nest collecting these specimens from a Malaysian tree Gardenia. Within seconds I was covered from head to toe in ants and being aggressively attacked, not only do these guys bite, they spray formic acid into the wounds too - It was totally worth it though, a new Gardenia ID for me is a total thrill and the scent of the flowers utterly sublime. #gardeniacarinata #malaysiantreegardenia #malaysia #redweaverant #mybotanicaladventures #weaverants #oecophyllasmaragdina #gardenia #whiteflower #perfume #scent

N A R C I S S U S . 'Wedding Bells' growing up in Zimbabwe, I considered daffodils to be very exotic and in my various attempts at growing bulbs as a child which smuggled back from England I only had success with a single bulb which flowered briefly in the shade of an Avocado pear tree - I was thrilled and treasured that single bloom. At 17 I came to study horticulture in England and by the time March came around I never ever wanted to see another Daffodil again having encountered way too many of the vulgar overbred varieties planted in abundance all over the country. To me the loveliest daff now is a white one and the rarely seen delightful native Narcissus pseudonarcissus. #botanicaldeconstruction #botanicalstudy #mybotanicaladventures #horticulture #whitedaffodil #springflowers #daffodils
