It started at the end of April with a trip to Oxford, to see the snakehead fritillaries. A train ride out of London got me there in no time. Even as the year is ending and I feel a chill in the air, I am putting together next year's itinerary and it is going to be epic. There is really nothing in small plans that would excite anyone. It has got to be so huge that it is scary and that's the kind that would wake up even the dead. I am excited about it.
