New Wiki Images: Tulipa sprengeri and Triteleia grandiflora howellii
Tue, 23 May 2006 15:44:47 PDT
I have added new images to the wiki of _Tulipa sprengeri_ and 
_Triteleia grandiflora howellii_ with a few remarks. Unlike my first 
attempt last week, these images have indeed been properly hooked up 
to the relevant page.

There is some temporary difficulty with the image at

but as soon as Mary Sue or Susan can get a chance, this mixup should 
be straightened out toot sweet.

The new images of Sprenger's tulip capture the flower's glowing 
color. The image previously uploaded did not do so, though it gave 
some idea of how this tulip fits into the garden picture.

The secret to capturing this tulip's color more or less realistically 
was to reduce the saturation on my little Sony digital camera, plus 
photographing it in full sun. Flower colors can be notoriously 
difficult to capture with any faithfulness, so this may be a useful 
formula for other PBS list subscribers having color troubles to use.
