Wow, I am speechless!
And that does not happy often. I once got my jaw dislocated. It did not keep me quiet. This summer I totally lost my voice. It did not stop me from "talking".
But now, what to say? The January issue is absolutely stunning! I have many times thought that I will ask my library to make copies of all IRGs that has been published this far. They have a very nice full color printer. I think now it is really time to do it. First thing Monday morning, I promise. It will keep them busy for a while and also give them good statistics, that the villagers are in need of the library and the printer.
I am not very interested in Eranthis; I mostly see them as a weed. But who can resist them after this?
In Swedish they are called "winter eluder".
Thank you everybody who contributed to this issue!

A fascinating article on a group of plants I knew little about. Thanks to Wim and the IRG team. A lovely issue.

Wim, a comprehensive and interesting article about the genus Eranthis - many thanks and a great compliment.

I have pointed out in the German forum "garten-pur '.

Tremendous article Wim! Just when you start getting to grips with snowdrops, there is another winter flower to tax your collecting instinct. I think the SRGC should consider selecting material from the IRG and publishing it in book form at some stage, and this would make a very fine article to include.

That was a fantastic article Wim. Your knowledge of these delightful little plants is a real eye-opener to me. Apart from E. hyemalis which I grow, and some notes on the Forum about other species, my own experience is nothing at all, so your notes and pictures showed me a whole new world. With so many newish cultivars and forms, I can imagine that winter aconite mania may even in time surpass the galanthus mania from which so many Forumists suffer! ;D

Thanks guys, you're really making me blush. Don't forget to thank Maggi for her fantastic lay-out capabilities and all the people who allowed me the use of their pictures and knowledge :)

OK, here is my report. My promise is completed. I now have a nice magazine of each issue of IRG. From now on I will have the new issue printed as soon as it is released.

Once again, thank you Wim for your article that made me finally have them all printed. ( And of course thank you Britt Svensson at our fantastic library. The cost? As importing an alpine book from UK. Absolutely worth it!)

That has worked out well,  Susann  - I know some have printed out all of the Bulb Logs too - more than ten years' worth! :o

Susann - what a great idea and after my comments above I shall have to do the same. It will be particularly exciting because I haven't looked back through the earlier IRG's before I joined the SRGC. Now I await your observations on pulsatillas!
