Note: This site was originally constructed about 20 years
ago when computer processors and web access were both primitively slow. At that
time, I made the photos purposely small to speed their viewing via the web. I
am currently (winter 2015-16) attempting to update the photos on this site to
a larger, higher quality size as well as add more information and additional ID
keys. Please be patient as this process occurs as it probably won't be completed
until after the 2012 flower season has completed!
