On Thursday, Phillip and I rented a car and headed out from Melbourne to meet William Martin and see his garden–Wigandia–in Noorat, Australia. Before we got to Noorat, we lunched with William in Camperdown and a conversation (or several) ensued–photographed by Phillip. That plant behind us is the eponymous Wigandia caracasana. (William, correct me if I’m in error.)
For me, this visit was an experience of legend.
(Well, William has a better version of this shot!)
A post on Wigandia, the garden, will follow after our travels are over.
