I agree Fenja. This is wonderful. A little iceberg in the background?

I'm flattered, Richy. Thanks!. Yes, it's an iceberg. On the north There is a glacier out of sight of this picture.

Never got this far south but these blasted Patagonian trees might have made the trip worthwhile.

Weather there is supposed to be reliably awful, looks like your trip was not bad.

Thanks for posting, any idea how old that tree is?

Hello, mramshaw! February is summer in Patagonia. Temperature range from 5 to 20 degrees celsius. The weather is unpredictable, but we were lucky. This tree (Nothofagus antartica) must be over 50 years... Maybe much more. I can not be precise. Under the conditions of the site, it grows very slowly.

Thanks for the reply, I know the age of the 'dwarf' trees there is often very surprising.

Kind of like Bonsai, only natural.
