Happy Holidays!

It just isn’t a vacation without sloth!

Time for a much-needed break, ladies and gentlemen! I’m heading to the farm on vacation for a couple of weeks, then taking off to South Africa for a few weeks after that. I’ll be speaking at the 6th International Legume Conference in Johannesburg, followed by a trip to Kruger National Park in the northeast of the country for a week of botanizing and gaping at large animals. I’ll see if I can’t find some questionable evolution going on there to tell you guys about when I get back. In the meantime, have a happy holiday and a great start to 2013, and I’ll see you back here on January 30th.

Vacation Time!

Time for a break, dear readers. For the next two weeks, I’m off to the farm to do as little as possible!

I’ll be thinking about new and exciting freaks and oddities to write about, so if you have a request or suggestion for a future post, be sure to write a comment, and I’ll see what I can do.

I’ll be back September 5th with a new article. Until then, for your viewing pleasure, here are some photos of my favourite place to pass the last days of summer…
