The next few weeks will be rather crowded: five weeks of teaching, a small conference and a phylogenomics workshop are all coming up, and seminars and committee meetings are looming. Things will become mellower the last week of August, but until then I will be hard pressed to write a lot of long blog posts. Expect the continued regular posting of botany pictures and a few shorter posts but nothing profound.

Presumably Viola hederacea (Violaceae), New South Wales, 2012.
