Dont be shy

Postby puffermac » Tue Jul 22, 2008 3:07 pm

It was nice to put a face to a few names of forum members at the thetford show, so I thought I would start a thread with a photo of me and hope a few will follow. Lets see what you all look like and we might meet at the national.

[Edited to put bigger picture in]: this is me sat in front of my big Opuntia leucotricha, with evidence of other recently cut-back other largish opuntias to the right...

This is yours truly while on a trip to a cactus garden in Barcelona.

Well I avoided the last 'put a face to a name' thread a few months back, but seeing as I've now already met a few forum members and should be meeting plenty more in a few weeks, I might just as well 'not be shy'! Lol!
(I prefer to stick to the other side of the camera! :D)

Tending more towards cacti :D, particularly Gymnocalyciums, Rebutias, Sulcorebutias, Echinopses, Thelos, Feros and Mamms (and anything else I like the look of!) all in an 8 x 6 polycarb greenhouse and a few windowsills!

Me in Arizona, 2005 next to the smallest cactus I could find. Unfortunately the whole thing couldn't fit in the photo because stepping back far enough meant that a) I was barely visible and b) You'd have had to fight your way through various opuntia and other saguaro!

Like Maria, I am usually the other side of the camera, consequentially pictures of me are few and far between, couldn't find any with plants, or just me but did find one with a few beauties.

Not got anything of me stuck in front of a cactus, only this on file at the moment.

That should put you off your tea! See how 47 years as a cactophile ages you!
