I am sooo ready for summer already and we aren't even through fall yet. This is going to be a long winter.

Bill, the flowers on those plants are beautiful.

Thanks folks.
Dawn, this form of scopa has always been my favourite, I love the dark spines.
Bill, I love your pic, which Noto is the one on the right... roseoluteus??
Wazzimodo... I use Photoshop to reduce my pics in prep for posting, I usually compress to somewhere around 100kb, I then place the finished product in my photobucket account, by doing this it beats the limitations required for posting links on the gardenweb forums.
I have never used IView, so I can't comment on it's functionality... though I know there are others here that do use it, maybe they can give you pointers, sorry.

Yes CPC, the plant on the right is N. roseoleutis, the left is N. rutilans, and the foreground is N turecekiana..

They are all very attractive plants! Does anyone recognize this fellow? Hasn't flowered for me yet, so I can't help you out with flower color. It came to me as gracilus, but I disagree. I thought it might be eugeniae but I'm not certain.

wazzimodo,

I'm not familiar with the program you are using. But my pics are usually something like 2448 X 1632 pixels and 250 dpi. I change the dpi to 72 (for internet use) and change the pixels to 700 X 400 pixels and saves as jpeg at medium or until the quality looks good.

Just make sure the file size is small enough to fit on gardenweb. If you don't want to bother with garden web you can use one of the many free on-line image hosting sites then just imbed the image to the thread using HTML.

Hope this helps.
