Photo of the Week - Giant Rhubarb

Photo of the Week come from the Island of Iona, while we were walking to visit the Abbey we spotted this plant. The leaves looked like they were from rhubarb which we all agreed but could not see any rhubarb. Then someone walking by a local no doubt told us that it was rhubarb but Giant Rhubarb from South America!

Latin name is Gunnera manicata or for us Brazilian giant rhubarb which is native from Colombia to Brazil. I will just say that it is not related to rhurbarb at all!

This weekend I am going to Luxembourg with Alessio, never been there so we will see how it is! It does look lovely Luxembourg City from the pictures I have seen and hopefully it will not rain!
