So that’s it, my placement is over. I’ve spent over ten months in Jerusalem Botanical Garden and it’s been incredible. Though I’m sad to leave, I’m also happy to be going onto new things.
I have the say a big thank you to all the great people at the JBG and to the Friends Of JBG for making this placement possible. The Friends of JBG is entirely supported by donations. Those donations enabled three scholars like me to enjoy placements this year and over a hundred prior to us. If you can donate, please do. Trusts like the Friends of JBG offer unique opportunities that are worth supporting.
Now I’m back in Cumbria, England. I’m struggling to get used to the temperature difference but it’s nice to be home. Below is a photo from the Ennerdale valley, just up the road from my house. It’s spectacular.
Though I started this blog as part of my placement at the JBG it’s become something I really enjoy doing. I intend to continue blogging. I’m starting my degree at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh soon, so I’m sure I’ll have plenty to post about!
