Each page refers (with links) to the previous and next.
Thus, if a page needs removed, then its best if you upload the project again, Eric.

Individual pages with text only changes can be uploaded once you have all your pages published in order.

Well done Eric. I'm delighted youve accomplished this challenge :)

Thank you for your perserverence.

You have done a great job with the photography Eric, and also the wpg, all on your own too.

I have never heard of or seen about 90% of those plants, makes a good shop window for some of the rarer plats.

Wow :o

Boy, you work real quick Eric :)
I am astounded, both by the speed of putting that WPG together, getting it uploaded and "figuring out" the URL of the home page to publish here on the forum. That is truly exceptional. I'm proud of you :D

I am also astounded by the quality of the photos, and for introducing me and other members to this range of stunning plants.
The Primulas I love as you know, but Ive discovered a new (to me) and exciting genus, going by the beauty of the mass of flowers on Dionysia Gnom.

Thank you ever so much for this excellent contribution and for using the WPG for this particular application.
You have made my day 8)

Well, if I COULD grow Dionysia I would. But they are possibly the most difficult of all Primulaceae to grow. Those who can do and the rest of us just stand back and admire.
Next show is not until March 5th. so a little time to wait for the next instalment.
PS. There are dozens more Dionysia on the discs I sent to George.

I hope to get back to all things gardening soon, Eric, and making good use of those photos  :)

Gardeners love a challenge, but I will take your advice on Dionysia. It would be a pleasure to see them in reality.
March 5th? Enjoy the occasion Eric. Its great to have you giving us a pictorial report via the WPG websites. Keep up the good work ;)

I do have sets of pictures like these from the few shows we went to last year. Do you think it would be a good/nice/interesting idea to make a set of pages from them? After all it is raining and blowing a gale and freezing cold and my back is very very painful. The computer chair is the most comfortable for me.

Excellent, Eric.
I'm working my way through the photos each time I have a little break (currently half time in the Arsenal -v- Barcelona match).
Its a real pleasure to explore.
Androsace spinulifera is a very interesting looking plant. Is it hardy outdoors in the right conditions in the UK?

Now you are asking. I presume so, but it might not like winter wet.

Another fantastic presentation :) Well done again Eric, and thank you for your valuable time in putting these projects together.
I wish I was able to take in a few of those shows. I'm sure they are a real treat :)

We did go to Pershore and one in Wilmslow but did not get that many pictures worth showing so I will have to combine the 2.
We did go to L'borough this year too, but the lighting is so awful that taking pictures is just a waste of time.

I'd keep them as separate WPG's Eric.
It would look better when I add them all to the home (index) page:
