It's been a very long busy summer...

I am very sorry that I didn't get a chance to post on here during the "summer" and late spring, however I've got some interesting pictures that some of you might find interesting. Also some updates on a few things I have been working on.
I have been involved with one of the local colleges over the past few months teaching a combination of Cambridge AE, IELTS and CLB leveled classes. Combine this with marking and family coming from ROK, the schedule has been crammed full.


Now for some interesting news. (subtropical plants)

I have got a few more plants in my collection now, namely Lycium barbarum, Zanthoxylum schinifolium, Hydrangea serrata (from Bijarim on Jejudo), Persea/Machilus Thunbergii (from Busan) and a very quickly growing Cinnamomum Camphora (now ~3ft tall) from California.
As all of you know we just came through a wickedly cold winter with a prolonged cold spell that lasted well into the first week of April. Though my minimum temperatures didn't fall below -4c, the below 0c temps certainly stuck around for far longer than normal and as such there was some damage done to things that I normally don't see damage on.. I lost my some of my bananas even though they were insulated. :(
I had cold burn on some of the leaves on my 15ft Cinnamomum septentrionale tree.
(Cinnamomum inunctum (Nees) Meissn. var. albosericeum gamble)

However, there were some major surprises. Both the Cinnamomum camphora and the P.thunbergii thrived, and with the summer heat grew amazingly fast.
Neither plant had any damage on them.
