Re: Armitage CD and other electronic wonders


Cathy & Pam,
I can relate, but I also use my computer to create and to share.  When I
give someone a plant I like to print out a sheet of info for them.Botanica
is good for that.  MOBOT, too.  I do a lot of display materials, plant tags,
etc for our MG plant sales.  It's great to be able to pull the info off a
CD.  Armitage & Dirr, of course, provide wonderful photography.  CDs alone
wouldn't work, but in conjunction with books and for different projects,
they're very handy.

Kitty
