A superb and very enjoyable photo-display of many wonderful plants Cliff!
This must have taken considerable time, effort and skill.

It's amazing what goes on behind the horticultural scenes Cliff! Been enjoying those. Maybe they will take more centre stage now...? I think I spy an alpine revival sometime soon. Perhaps Maggi is right that these things go in waves. Those plants and Shows are really something special.

Incredible photographs Cliff. I found myself wishing for a closer look. Do you upload them somewhere online at high resolution? I love the Iris iberica ssp. eleganstissima!

Hi Jamus, many thanks for your very kind comments, much appreciated. I don't have a blog or a website, so little time with managing the garden, travelling so much and frequent lectures ... and, to be honest, so many images that any website would be unmanageable. LOL.
Most of my best images are used in my digital presentations so people do get to see them. Very best regards from the UK.

Thanks Cliff, I know what you mean by time restrictions, my biggest limitation also! Your pictures are an inspiration and I look forward to doing more growing in pots like you do. I've started but I need to expand my nursery (under shade cloth in Adelaide is essential).

Hi! You take great photos! What a pity I haven't seen them before. Two weeks ago, I needed such photos to design my botany report. And I've been looking for decent pictures for a long time. As a result, I found what I needed on depositphotos. By the way, have you tried posting your photos on this platform? You could earn money from your photos, which I think would be very nice for a creative person. Good luck to you in your creativity, and your talent will be honed and improved every year!

Wow, folks ... I seriously thought that this topic was history by now ... four years since the last entry ... but many thanks for your very kind comments, Thomostak and laotiosub. Hopefully, now that Covid is retreating, we may be able to visit many more shows and my lens can concentrate on the exhibits once again.

Amazing photos! Exactly what I was looking for. I needed similar close-up images of flowers to decorate my kitchen. Can I use them for personal purposes?   I love being surrounded by plants, but I don't have time to take care of them since I work a lot. That's why I'm not growing anything now. I want to order some photos of acrylic glass on https://www.frameshop.com.au/acrylic-prints for interior decoration. I think it will make a few accents in the design of the kitchen.
