04 May, 2003 gallery additions

I've been taking a lot of trips this spring (with lots more to come, including a possible trip to the Royal Botanic Garden in Canada in the coming weeks), so there's lots of photos to share. Of course, finding the time to scan the slides is a different story...

I've thrown a little bit of everything into the gallery this week, but most of it is from my springtime travels. To those of you who have sent me images that haven't appeared in the gallery yet, don't despair. I just haven't gotten around to them. It's very easy to add my own photos because I have software set up to do it automatically, but adding photos from others is more complicated.

I also wanted to mention that I'm going to start renaming plants in the hort.net gallery to reflect more modern nomenclature[1]. That means that Cimicifuga will now be listed as Actaea and Acanthopanax will become Eleutherococcus. Other changes will be more minor; for example, Thalictrum aquilegifolium will be listed as Thalictrum aquilegiifolium (see the extra 'i' in there?).

There will be about 300 name changes total, affecting about 18% of the plants listed. I'll still list the old names as synonyms, though.

That's about it from here... Warming up slowly, but we're finally getting some much needed rain. Now if only I could finish building my deck!

Enjoy spring!
