Hi Dan,

At last the old ‘Bugger’, has got his act together and has a website! Its great news and I’m sure we will all be thrilled at the content.

I wish him well with this new project, and I certainly will be a frequent visitor to this site.

Many congratulations,

I am indebted to Robin Jehan (sometimes known as “Loy”) for allowing me to post a number of his accent plants on this page

Hi Dan,

Loved it, especially the Chaenomeles variety. This makes me want to make another trip to Failand.

Lots of love,

Cousin Julie from Germany

Dan, We were students of Jean C. Smith for 10 years and miss her every day. We still spend ‘Mondays with Ed’ at their house, working on the collection and just being. Ed is a wonderful person and working to keep himself present in the world.

I am a Master Gardener for our local Extension Office and publish our newsletter. Permission is requested to show 2-4 of the accent plant pictures in the NL with a link back to the site. We are always trying to educate the non-bonsai community and this would be a wonderful side light for some of our avid container gardener friends.

I can credit the pictures any way you prefer.

Thank you for sharing.

Many thanks Lynn for your kind comments, and yes, Ed Smith is indeed a wonderful guy and I have many happy memories of him and of course of Jean who took such good care of me on all of my trips to Florida. Yes, of course you may post some of my images in NL. Credit as you see fit. Cheers, Dan

ps If your NL is online is it possible to send me the URL!

Dan– Feels like it’s been a million years since I last saw you in England. Ed Smith sent us information about your new project. We would love to be apart of anything that you are involved with. Early 2011 we are going to have our trees photographed and will get in touch. Your web-site is beautiful ( of course ), we are setting ours up soon and man …… you have set the “bar” high. Rodney and Charlie
