Now I'm more curious. What desk-top images do other plant enthusiasts have? My desk top wallpaper is a photo I did of a plate from a 1938 number of Gartenschönheit. This plate reproduces a 1937 work by artist Esther Bartning which illustrates about a dozen colchicums, mostly garden sorts. Bowles cited this plate in his discussion of the garden-raised hybrids. The overall color scheme and design remind me of a sofa we had when I was a kid. Incidentally, the text to the plate and the plate itself don't agree in one interesting aspect - and I've never seen this discrepancy mentioned anywhere. My screen saver is a slide show made up of selected images of plants in the garden (a friend called them trophy plants). So what do others see when they pull away from the keyboard for awhile?
