29 February, 2012 gallery additions

Today felt like our first true spring day — 65 degrees and it's not even March yet (due to an astronomical correction in the Gregorian calendar, but we'll ignore that).

As promised, this week's gallery includes a fair number of tropical photos. The problem with tropicals is that I don't get to photograph them very often, and when I do the conditions aren't always perfect. I take what I can get, so that's why you don't see them on hort.net very often.

I'm looking forward to more warm days, blooms, and a camera in hand! See you next week!
