Bulb Log 31
« on: August 05, 2010, 10:25:42 AM »
What a gem of a bulb log this is! So much practical advice on everything from making garden hardware to finding Rhodohypoxis seeds (No wonder I've never found any before...). How on earth you find time to do all these things as well as take the excellent photographs and write the log is beyond me. Many thanks for all your hard work.

I like that David but as the saying goes. Behind every man there is a brilliant woman and we all know that Maggi is brilliant  ;D ;D

The BD is something of a polymath, that is  true... me, well, in spite of Angie's kind words, I'm really more of a poly-bag  ;D

I've often wondered whether YOU photograph him doing things, or whether he sets up a tripod with the camer on timer or with a long shutter release??

Well I've seen evidence that Maggi has 'a hand in the photography' to get that perfect shot  :D
