  • How do you do?
    I'm Jamie; an incurably-curious, hopelessly-idealistic, vegetarian, polyglot-ish plant scientist at Cambridge. I spend too much time listening to music, wandering around the countryside, and eating apples.


    penchants: forest walks, benjamin britten, mediaeval history & literature, eastern philosophy, obscure tea blends, copperplate, twilight by the sea, quantum mechanics, thunderstorms, fruit trees, early music, dragonflies, postcards, underground railways, gardening, vapour trails, tiny art galleries, volcanic islands, moths, Virginia Woolf, gin cocktails, travel journals, mountain air, handwriting, continental cinema, bow ties, Lebanese food, historical linguistics, archery, all things Icelandic, & bitter-sweet lemonade.
    Thank you for stopping by; do say hello.

    Pictures by Alexey Yakovlev of tepui vegetation on and around Roraima, a table-top mountain at the tri-point of Brazil, Venezuela, and Guyana.

    Bonnetia roraimae; Epidendrum secundum; Heliamphora nutans; Epidendrum ibaguense; Eriopsis biloba; Epidendrum ulei, and Cyrilla racemiflora.
