25 February, 2015 gallery additions

I've fallen behind again, and it's been five weeks since the last update! We're back on track again for more regular additions to the gallery now.

It turns out that the disks I was using to store all of the images ran out of space, so I tried updating the system to a lot more storage (28TB instead of 10TB). Unfortunately, it took forever to copy all of the data, and the first time that I did it things failed and I had to start all over again. In the meantime, I couldn't even access all of the photos to upload them into the gallery, and it took over a week to copy everything each time!

Now that the upgrade is finished I finally have enough space (and can expand out to a full 40TB if necessary), so I can also start adding newer photos that haven't been cataloged yet.

Anyhow, enough computer mumbo-jumbo.

We have 22 new photos this week, including trees, vines, perennials, and annuals. I went with bright things that reminded me of warmer temperatures this time, and I hope they do the same for you.

See you again soon with another update!
