  6. Hi Leigh,

    I have a terrible habit of not writing down the species names as I wander around conservatories and gardens. All I can tell you is that it is a cactus. I hope to visit the Conservatory in a few weeks. I promise to record all species names next time! :biggrin:
  7. Yep, I was having much too much fun yesterday. I framed this image to capture the afternoon light and the very very sharp points of the cactus. I also processed this one in PSCS. I usually do all of my processing in Nikon Capture but the shadow slider came in handy in the Adobe Camera Raw dialog box.
  8. Yes they are (sharp I mean). Not something I would want in my yard.
  9. Agreed!

    You know what you could do instead of writing the names down. Take a picture of the sign :smile:
  11. Sometimes I remember to do that, however the signage in this conservatory is obscured by the flora. My sherpa err, my husband :biggrin: usually records the names of the plants assisted by my junior sherpa, my eight year old son. :biggrin:
