Hi Gang,

    Canada has some wonderful botany-related resources.  One of my favorites 
(known to me only from the Internet) is the University of British Columbia 
Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research.  I have browsed through the 
Web site many times and always find something new to learn when I visit.

    One feature is the Botany Photo of the Day.  Today the photo shows 
Colchicum flowers in bloom, in a garden in Ukraine.  Most of the time each 
image is accompanied by some commentary or useful information.

    Another photo that I really like depicts Puya santosii in bloom, a 
terrestrial bromeliad.  Puya is not a bulb or geophyte, but I enjoy growing 
terrestrial bromeliads and Puya's produce some beautiful flowers.  Some Puya 
spp. are hardy here (to 20 F or so) and enjoy the year-round Gulf Coast

    I guess y'all can figure out where I spend some time on the Internet, I'm 
a first rate image gawker and find the UBC plant images to be generally 
first rate.  If you like all plants, you'll like the UBC Web site.
