Re: TB: Edith Wolford or Jurassic Park (or something


Here's a photos of  From A Distance and ActThree from my garden. Act Three
is from a scanned photo so is a bit too purple.  From A Distance is also a
soft colour, does OK but not as vigorous as JP. Also FAD tends to fade, a
just lacks a bit of crispness in it's looks.
