We discovered this quotation at Chelsea Physic Garden. It is the motto of Carl Linnaeus, the 18th Century Botanist and father of modern Taxonomy. We think his motto is so apt for our project that we have decided to adopt it.

A return to the site of these find, and a more detailed examination of the tree from which the leaf came leads us to conclude that this is an apple tree, thus an apple tree leaf.
