A little word from our Office News Hound Hi Folks .. I am officially the office dog for the Garden Tripod Magazine. I love this image of the cream saluki, titled when will it stop snowing. I know just how this feels, as I live in scotland and it has been snowing forever, at least it feels like it has. This image (when will it stop snowing) has connections with a top Saluki breeder in Canada, Lorrequer Salukis and their web page can be found at lorrequer.com The relaxed Saluki below is my big bro, well we are not really related, just share a cottage together. He is far to old to play out with, and likes to sleep a lot. Still he is teaching me how to be the perfect little Saluki. So I am calm and quiet. I enjoy watching TV of an evening, but it hard to hear over the snoring coming from big bro ! Stay Safe Princess Summer

Floriade 2012 by George Row This 360° panorama highlights the cable car that traversed the site of the Floriade-2012 international gardening festival, which was held near Venlo in the province of Limburg in the South East of The Netherlands. I have three prints here created from the same panoramic view of this garden. This one focuses on the cable car the other two are more focused on the garden. This pylon was in one of the exhibition gardens at Floriade. This garden and the earth sculptures that it features were designed by the artist Sjer Jacobs. He chose the painting “Lying around the water” as his starting point and created a garden that reflected the painting. There are three great heads, an arm and a hand crafted out of soil. Moss and seedlings were planted in the earth sculptures to hold them together. The aim was that they would change and grow throughout the year of Floriade. In an interview before Floriade opened Sjer Jacobs said: “It is a living piece of art created with nature. I’m fond of gardens and I often see gardens to which an art work is added in some way. Some works of art are just bought and some might be especially made for the garden. But for Floriade I didn’t want to make a garden with artworks in it, I wanted the art and nature to be as one.”

There is some explanation of his inspiration and his methods on his website. Obviously most of it is in Dutch, but, if you have the English-language option on, the captions to the images mostly include an English sentence or two. The original Floriade inter national gardening festival was held in 1960. Floriade gardening festivals have been repeated each decade since then. The second one was in 1972 and they have been held every ten years from then. I visited Floriade 2012 in April and again in September 2012. Method This high dynamic range (HDR) panorama was created from 27 separate images. The source images were shot on a Canon EOS 5d Mk ii, with a 16mm Zenitar Fisheye lens. These were stitched and blended together using Hugin, which in turn invoked Nona, Enblend and Enfuse to combine the images and achieve the HDR effect. The source photographs were shot hand held without the usual tripod. A simple plumb-line was used as a guide to keeping the camera in the correct position as the sequence was shot.

St Columb's Cathedral from Derry's Walls at Church Bastion, Derry by George Row This 360° panoramic photograph was shot on Derry’s city walls at Church Bastion – one of the fortified parts of the historic walls – next to St Columb’s Cathedral. The church is named after Saint Columba – also often known by the Irish form of his name Columcille – who established a monastic settlement in Derry in the middle of the sixth century. In fact the city was for a time known as “Doire Colmcille”, before that it was known as “Doire Calgach”. (Which literally meant “oak wood of Calgach” – Calgach was a Celtic chieftain.) The London guilds who sponsored the building of the Cathedral renamed the city London-Derry. Col. Thomas Colby in his Ordinance Survey volume published in 1837 observed that the city had had double-barreled names through-out its history but that the natives invariably reverted to simply calling it “Derry”. Planning for St Columb’s Cathedral started in 1613. The original construction was completed by 1633 making it the first Anglican cathedral constructed after the reformation and now the oldest intact original building inside Derry’s city walls. Having said that it has seen a good deal of development over the years. In 1776 the tower was extended by 20 feet and then topped with a stone spire, making a total height of 221 feet. But by the end of that century the tower was showing signs of giving way and the whole structure was dismantled in order to be rebuilt. By 1802 the new tower was complete and 20 years later the current spire had been added. The nave remained in its original form until 1825 when the South porch was removed. In

1827 the eastern turrets were altered – in earlier drawings they appear with battlements – and of course there are famous stories of the cathedral having canon installed on the turrets during the siege of 1689. In 1861/2 the interior of the Cathedral was entirely remodeled. The chancel was added in 1887 – built on foundations that had been laid in 1633. So you could say that it took over 250 years to complete the original building as planned by the Cathedral’s architects. In 1910 the Chapter House was added behind the porch. It now houses a museum. Changes since then could be seen just as maintenance – including the recent extensive cleaning and refurbishment of the exterior stonework of the Cathedral. The wooden parts of the canons seen here in Church Bastion were also restored in recent years – but the barrels are originals that date from the before the siege of Derry in 1689. Each year St Columb’s Cathedral is visited by more than 80,000 tourists and visitors. Method and Photo-technical details This panorama was created from twenty four separate digital photographs, covering every angle and with multiple exposures, bracketed in groups of three from +2 stops to -2 stops. The source images were shot on a Canon EOS 5d Mk ii with a Canon 15mm fisheye lens and stitched and blended together using Hugin, a free open source program. These images were combined into a single high-resolution, panorama by the program Hugin. Hugin in turn invoked the programs Nona, to adjust the images, Enblend to blend the seams and Enfuse to create the high dynamic range effect by blending the bracketed exposures.

Two Cows on Parade, lower - Ebrington Square, Derry by George Row Created from 25 separate images shot on a Canon EOS 5d Mk-ii with a 16mm Zenitar Fisheye M42 Manual Focus lens. Then stitched and blended together using Hugin, Nona, Enblend and Enfuse to combine the images and achieve the HDR effect. (see Method below for more detail.) These painted cows are part of Derry’s Cow Parade in Ebrington Square, Derry. One of the cows in this panorama was created by Something Special a music and arts education centre for adults with learning disabilities. They named it Moolinton. Its theme is “our musical heritage”. They painted it under the guidance of artist Rory Harron. It depicts a scene of Derry’s City walls, incorporating into the stone work the names of the musical heroes of the members of Something Special. The heroes are a diverse group which included: The Undertones, Paul Brady, Snow Patrol and even The Ulster Orchestra! The other is, one of two, created by the Pennyburn Play Trail under the guidance of artists John and Trisha Deery. Its theme is “The future” and amid its bright colours are scenes and slogans representing the aspirations of the children from the Play Trail. Ebrington Square was formerly Ebrington Army Barracks. Under the guidance of Ilex (the local Urban Regeneration Company) it has been transformed into a public open space. You can see Derry City centre in the distance across the river.

Each of the cows in the parade was painted by a different artist. Each artist was paired with a community group and worked with them to identify a theme. The Cow Parade is said to be the largest participative art project in the world. Having been seen by 300m people world wide it certainly has a claim to that title! In fact t h e re a re m a n y c o w p a r a d e s . T h e organisers provide plain white fiberglass cows – mostly in three characteristic stances – and artists and community groups in a local area come together to decorate their cow in a way that highlights a locally relevant theme. There are twelve, or more of these cows in Ebrington Square and a few others scattered around Derry. Method This high dynamic range (HDR) panorama was created from 25 separate images. The source images were shot on a Canon EOS 5d Mk ii, with a 16mm Zenitar Fisheye lens. These were stitched and blended together using Hugin, which in turn invoked Nona, Enblend and Enfuse to combine the images and achieve the HDR effect.

Croaghbeg Court Tomb, Shalwy Valley, Donegal by George Row These ancient stones are in the Shalwy Valley, near the village of Kilcar: in the South West of County Donegal, the most North Westerly county in Ireland. A virtual reality version of this panorama has been featured as part of the World Wide Panorama project’s Heritage event from where you can launch a full screen Virtual Reality version. Croaghbeg is a Megalithic stone structure known as a “full-court tomb”. It was uncovered and investigated by archaeologists between 1969 and 1973. That excavation revealed a long cairn – about 40m – with the two chambered gallery shown here, and a subsidiary chamber on the NW side of the court. The site is also sometimes referred to as Pontabane Cairn. (I think perhaps the hump that existed here before the excavation was called “Pontabane Cairn” and what was revealed by the excavation was named “Croaghbeg Tomb”. But that is just speculation on my part.) Looking in you can see the massive stones that form the sides and back of the chambers. They are each about 2m in diameter. The lintel stones at the entrance and between the chambers are each about 2.5m wide and almost a metre thick. This is one of three Megalithic tombs in the Shalwy valley, which lies on the road from the fishing port of Killybegs to Slieve League about 6km West of Killybegs and about 3km East of the village of Kilcar . Based on its style of construction it is likely that Croaghbeg was built about 6,000 years ago – about 1,000 years before work started on Stonehenge or the great Egyptian pyramids.

Photographic Method and Processing detail The panorama was created by combining 27 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposure. Hence the HDR effect with detail both in the most brightly lit areas and in the shadows. Eight separate “shots” were taken: six horizontal at 60° intervals, one down into the tomb and one up at the sky. Each “shot” was actually three bracketed exposures: a middle, a +2 stops and a -2 stops. Hugin delegates the generation of the High Dynamic Range effect to a program called “Enfuse” which does the exposure blending it is a close cousin of the “Enblend” program that it invokes for blending the joins. The Source images were shot in Raw-mode on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16 mm M42 fisheye lens, and were stitched and blended into a HDR Panorama using Hugin – a free open-source panorama stitching program.

Stepping Stones Across Kilkeel River, County Down by George Row The Kilkeel river starts in the Silent Valley, in County Down, N. Ireland, where it has been dammed to fill a reservoir that is used to supply Belfast and the surrounding areas with water. It flows from there to the Irish Sea, which it enters at the fishing town of Kilkeel. Method This full 360° high dynamic range panorama was created by combining 27 separate photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposures. Those source images were shot in Raw mode on a Canon 5D with a 16mm Zenitar Manual Focus fisheye lens mounted via an EOS adapter. They were shot in groups of three bracketed exposures (from -2 stops to +2 stops). They were then stitched and blended together using a program called Hugin, which in turn invoked a program called

Enfuse to create the High Dynamic Range effect. This 360° panorama was shot on stepping stones that cross the Kilkeel River below Hanna’s Close . The steps are made from huge lumps of the local granite which is a characteristic of the mountains and the dry stone walls in the area. Hanna’s Close is one of two “Clachans” in Northern Ireland that have been preserved and given an official listing as historic buildings. The Clachan was a type of small traditional settlement common in Ireland and Scotland for hundreds of years. It usually consisted of a small cluster of single-storey cottages, lacking a church, or other formal building.

Rory's House - Tigh Ruairi (Inis Oirr Village) by George Row This 360° panorama was shot in the village area of Inisheer Island. The smallest of the three Aran Islands in Galway Bay. (The island′s official name is the Irish: “Inis Oírr” meaning “east island”. The name of the pub with the blue sign “Tigh Ruairí” (the yellow writing on the blue sign behind the wall) literally means “Ruairí′s House”. With a modern day population of only 250 people, Inisheer welcomes many times that number of tourists each summer. If you visit you can be sure of a music-session most nights at Tigh Ruairí.

This High Dynamic Range panorama was created by combining 27 separate photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposures. Those source images were shot in Raw mode on a Canon EOS 5D with a 16mm fisheye lens. They were shot in groups of three bracketed exposures (from -2 stops to +2 stops). They were then stitched and blended together using a program called Hugin, which in turn invoked a program called Enfuse to create the High Dynamic Range effect. Because of the way that it was created this is a very high resolution image (the equivalent of about 50-megapixels). It′s capable of delivering very fine detail even when printed at massive sizes.

Dusk Shoreline near Moville, Donegal

Dusk Shoreline near Moville, Donegal

Moville Shoreline at Dusk, Donegal


Dusk Shoreline near Moville, Donegal This 360째 panorama was taken at twilight on the shoreline of Lough Foyle between the town of Moville and the fishing port of Greencastle on the Easter n coast of the Inishowen peninsula in County Donegal, Ireland. In the nineteenth century Moville was the final embarkation point for many emigrants who left this area for a new life in America. In the midtwentieth century Moville had many of the qualities of a sea-side town for outings by the population of the City of Derry which lies twenty miles up river. The panorama is shown here as an equi-rectangular image with a 2:1 aspect ratio, that is, it represents a 360째 view left to right and 180째s top to bottom.

Method This High Dynamic Range (HDR) panoramic image was created by combining 27 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposures (mid and +/- 2 stops). Hence the detail has been captured both in the brightest areas of the sky and in the shadows between the rocks. The photographs were shot under pressure as the tide came in, Garden Tripod 9 49

widening the gaps between the rocks on which the tripod stood. The source images were shot on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16mm fisheye lens and stitched together using the free open-source program Hugin, which in turn invokes a program called Enfuse to blend the exposures and create the HDR effect.


Kinnagoe Bay


Garden Tripod 9 51


Kinnagoe Bay Panorama by George Row This equi-rectangular panoramic image was created by stitching 24 original photographs. It was the basis of my three stereographic panoramic images of Kinnagoe Bay. Kinnagoe Bay is a wonderful cove beneath a cliff. In 1971 local divers located an Armada shipwreck, “La Trinidad Valencera” in the bay. After many years of preservation work many of the artifacts recovered are now featured in the exhibition at the Tower Museum in Derry. Kinnagoe bay is on the North coast of the Inishowen Peninsula in North Donegal (Ireland’s most northerly county). The shoreline of the bay consists of two crescents of sand looking out into the North Atlantic. It is one of Donegal’s best secrets. Even though it is on a well-sign-posted scenic route most visitors miss it. If you were following the Inishowen 100 scenic route clockwise around the peninsula, you would find Kinnagoe Bay after Culdaff, just past Tremone Bay and before you reach Greencastle. The road rises sharply to a hairpin bend just by the coast. On the cliff top at the edge of the road, looking out over the bay, there is a memorial to the Armada. Next to the memorial there is a narrow

road winding down the cliff to a car park. The beach, backed by cliffs, has soft, golden sand scattered with huge boulders. If you could only visit one beach on the Inishowen peninsula I would suggest that you made it Kinnagoe and you would not be disappointed. If you visit it ten times it will be different each time you visit. The waves have carved the rocks into wonderful shapes. Each tide piles up the sand and washes it away. The beach changes shape, the rocks get covered and re-emerge. Method The panorama was created by combining 24 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposures. Hence the detail has been captured both in the brightest areas of the sky and in the shadows on the hillside. The Source images were shot on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16 mmm fisheye lens, and were stitched and blended using Hugin – a free opensource panorama stitching program.


Glencolmcille Church - Panoramic by George Row Glencolmcille is a classic, flat-floored, glaciated valley. Surrounded by the hills of South West Donegal, the the mouth of the valley opens into the North Atlantic with a gorgeous sandy beach.   The Church of Ireland church sits in the middle of the valley floor with a commanding view of the whole of Glencolmcille.   There is an underground chamber or souterrain in the grounds just in front of the church. It is thought to have predated the current church by many centuries and to have been used as a place of sanctuary in times when the valley was attacked from the sea by Vikings raiders. This HDR (High Dynamic Range) panorama was created by combining 27 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposure. Hence there is detail both in the brightest parts of the sky and in the shadows.   The Source images were shot in sets of three bracketed (+/- 2 stops) Raw exposures on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16 mmm fisheye lens, and were stitched and blended using Hugin – a free open-source panorama stitching program. Hugin in turn invokes a program called Enfuse to achieve the HDR effect, by blending the best exposed parts of each of the images in each bracketed set.

I am invisible Interview with Andrew Coogan


Forgotten Decadence by Andrew Coogan


Q. First Question has to be What is URBEX ? A. Here’s the dictionary definition: Urban Exploration: The study of parts of civilization that are normally unseen or off limits such as abandoned structures, drains, sewers, tunnels, etc. As well as the above it’s a chance to momentarily escape the reality we live in and reclaim what society has decided to leave behind. We look beyond the fences that have been put up and discover we have a chance, be it fleetingly to crawl out of our comfort zones and enter a world of beauty that is being lost before our very eyes… Q. Andrew, you have an impressive collection of URBEX images, are you recording these buildings for historical importance or artistic content? A. Every explorer has their own reasons for why they do it. Subconsciously or not, just being there and taking photographs i’m in some small way recording an historical snap shot of the place and at the same time discovering for myself a part of our history that i may not ever have known had I not seen it first hand. Imagine being in a museum where your not held back by guide ropes or glass boxes and your actually able to walk through history. Artistically, it’s a big part of it too, i’ve traveled hundreds of miles for that one shot. I’ve been privileged to see and photograph some truly amazing places that one day will be lost forever.

We don't need no education by Andrew Coogan


Q When did you first realize the potential of photographing in abandoned buildings? A Do you mean, when did i decide that i wanted to do this? Did you ever run around abandoned places as a kid? It’s just like that. It’s just that some of us never grew out of it and have happened to think it would be nice to take some pictures while we were there. Q Have you ever been asked to leave a building, when photographing? A That should be rephrased as have you ever been caught whilst photographing a building! Yes i have, by security guards, owners and the police. Each scenario brings with it it’s own decisions that you have to make at the time and it can also depend on where you are that can have an impact on the outcome. Q If you could be allowed free access to one abandoned building, what one would it be and why? A I don’t want to jinx it so i gonna keep that one to myself for the time being lol

www.redbubble.com/people/sketchesofcoop Garden Tripod 9 63


In the end is the beginning by Andrew Coogan


Q In your experience are these buildings presenting a personal hazard to your health, with the higher levels of mold and other hazardous materials that are present in older buildings left to decay. Have you been injured exploring? A There are dangers every time you go out, it’s part and parcel of it and needs to be remembered. It’s rare that i end a day without cuts or bruises of some degree. I’ve never had a serious injury yet (touch wood) The worse i’ve done is slice the top of my finger open on a broken piece of glass. My finger was pouring blood. Fortunately for me one of the guys i was with had a first aid kit with them so i managed to patch it up and we carried on exploring. There is a quote from an explorer called Downfallen that said “ When seeing a sign that says “Danger: Do Not Enter” we understand that this is a shorthand way of saying “Leaving protected zone: Demonstrate personal accountability beyond this point” You take that with you every time you go over the fence.

silence in court by Andrew Coogan


Q Do you ever find personal information or belongings of people that have been in the hospitals you photograph? A I’ve walked into places that look like the people who were there have just left and you feel that at any time you expect them just to walk in the front door at any given moment. Suitcases and coats with the patients name on them in hospitals, notes from meetings, letters and postcards, records and documents. Past moments in time now forgotten and lost forever. Q.

Micropropagation

Part 2 –

[Picture: Growth Cabinet]

Initiation of a new variety into culture [New start] Similar to any propagation method, you should start with a healthy plant that is disease, virus*, and pest free. I also recommend the plant should also be under watered, herbicide, pesticide, dust free for at least 6 weeks * A quantity of viruses have advantages or traits The plant should have little to no stress; however that can be an advantage in some varieties E.g. Clematis in low light, stressing shoots to elongate This is due to the elongation of the shoots there is a higher concentration of natural auxin in the shoots that can lead to a more vigorous culture. A small section can be taken from a stem, root, leaf, bud or single cell; often from meristematic tissue this is then called an explant. Due to the presence of sucrose in the gel, all traces of dirt, bacteria, sources of contaminate need to be removed before placing the explants in the medium. Surface sterilize the explants – Askham Bran College Method One 5% Tween 20 for 5 min [Optional 0.1% Hg2Cl2 [Mercury chloride] for up to 10 min] 10% Bleach for 10 - 15 min [Sodium hypochlorite] [Hydrogen peroxide] 3 X wash distilled autoclaved water Remove any damaged tissue Place in the gel and store in the growth room, growth cabinet or on the trolley. The environment is air-conditioned @ 25°C - 27°C depending on variety and the explants are grown under white light (normally) with a Lux level of 1200. New starts need to be inspected daily for early bacterial contamination.

[Pictures: Contamination 1]/2/3/4 Bleeding]

Bacterial contamination can be the result of · New start plant material not being completely clean · Cross contamination from another culture · The human element infecting the plant. E.g. skin cells · Loss of power to the Laminar Flow Cabinet · Infection / virus in the stock plant leaching into the culture If this occurs the explant will require a further dip in Sodium hypochlorite and a new jar of medium. Problems that can arise throughout the life of the culture · Explant dies = Dom strength or Medium to strong or wrong time of year · Explant blackens / dies = Contamination, bleeding, wrong mix, GR to hot or cold · Growth slow = wrong mix, dormant period, virus, unseen contamination, old culture or Ethylene gas build up stunting / killing the growth · Bleeding = phenolic exudates [organic metabolic byproducts transported by the Phloem] from the culture that colours the medium inky purplish black and is often toxic = dull knives, old cultures or too liquid a medium · Shoots long and spindly = add more cytokinin · Shoots too short = reduce cytokinin · Fat stems but small leaves = reduce cytokinin · Unwanted callus = wrong hormones try reducing cytokinin or a new mix/gel · Red stems = stress change temp, light, reduce sugar & increase nitrate · Vitrification = lower cytokinin or/and nitrate + increase agar + sunfilm to reduce water or it’s an old culture therefore start thinking 'New Start'. Bacterial contamination can be the result of · New start plant material not being completely clean · Cross contamination from another culture · The human element infecting the plant. E.g. skin cells · Loss of power to the Laminar Flow Cabinet · Infection / virus in the stock plant leaching into the culture If this occurs the explant will require a further dip in Sodium hypochlorite and a new jar of medium.

Problems that can arise throughout the life of the culture · Explant dies = Dom strength or Medium to strong or wrong time of year · Explant blackens / dies = Contamination, bleeding, wrong mix, GR to hot or cold · Growth slow = wrong mix, dormant period, virus, unseen contamination, old culture or Ethylene gas build up stunting / killing the growth · Bleeding = phenolic exudates [organic metabolic byproducts transported by the Phloem] from the culture that colours the medium inky purplish black and is often toxic = dull knives, old cultures or too liquid a medium · Shoots long and spindly = add more cytokinin · Shoots too short = reduce cytokinin · Fat stems but small leaves = reduce cytokinin · Unwanted callus = wrong hormones try reducing cytokinin or a new mix/gel · Red stems = stress change temp, light, reduce sugar & increase nitrate · Vitrification = lower cytokinin or/and nitrate + increase agar + sunfilm to reduce water or it’s an old culture therefore start thinking 'New Start'. Desiccant tubes can also be used to reduce vitrification however this can also be a weaning method · Shoot blindness = add gibberellin to the mix & lower light · Ethylene gas build up = sunfim plus multiplication quicker & reduce temperature in the growth room or move jar to a lower level & add charcoal to the mix. · Contamination = don't work on the same variety on same day & use a good micro technique. Try to catch contamination in the early stages and use Sodium hypochlorite Always keep a record of crop numbers, changes in mediums or technique.

Ramblings from the Office Temp ~ Grow your own !! We all know this: Fruits grow from trees or bushes. You can buy an apple tree, put it in a nice spot in your garden, protect it from drought and deceases and then, at some point in the future, it will give you apples. Wow, nature is SO cool! But I would like to take you one step further. How about growing your own fruits, from the beginning? It’s such a fun and rewarding way, I just have to tell you about it. Two years ago I wanted to buy a lemon tree. I love lemons, and I certainly love the trees they grow from after seeing them on Crete on my summer holiday, so it seemed to be a logical step. There was only one thing I did not take into consideration……I wasn’t rich enough to buy a grown lemon tree! Man they are expensive! So I bought a few lemons, squeezed them to get my hands on the seeds and put the seeds in a little flowerpot with soil. It was summer, so I put the pot outside, in the good company of my collection of herbal plants in pots. After a few weeks, little lemon plants came out!! Oh wow I was impressed. I was not convinced this would work, for some reason I thought it just couldn’t be that simple. But it was, and I had 30 little lemon plants to prove it. Somehow I expected some kind of alteration to the fruits, making it impossible to grow anything from their seeds. Now all I had to do was keeping the tiny new ones alive, for they were my lemon trees of the future. All it took was a bit of water on the dry days, and keep them out of reach of my hungry chickens. I watched them grow and grow until my little flowerpot was too crowded and my lemon children were ready for their own rooms. I split the bunch in four pieces and put two of them in new and bigger pots. I tossed the rest out, because I wanted one or two lemon trees, not 30. After two years and several pot sizes later, I found out I had been growing the wrong lemons. These were bushes, not trees. They wanted to climb. Oh well, I was too attached now, so I keep taking care of them. I still hope to see my very own first lemon in a few years. After this fabulous success, I couldn’t help myself. I wanted to grow more of my own fruits. So I started

to grow other kinds too. I took the seeds of a passion fruit, mango`s and avocado. And guess what?? That worked too! Especially the avocado was fantastic, since it looks like it wants to be a tree. Tall and proud! In winter it loses all its leafs and looks pretty dead, but then when spring comes and I put it outside in the sun, all leaves comes back, and he will grow new branches too. Now before you run to the store and empty out their fruit department, there are a few things you should consider. First of all, it takes years and years before you will see any fruit. If ever! Some of the species you took the seeds from, might need extra`s before they can give you fruit. In some cases, they even need a mate because they are not a self-pollinating species. So there is a surprise factor and you might not get all you want. But just imagine if it does work, and you get to eat your very own passionfruit, or peaches….wouldn’t that be amazing? Of course it takes much longer for fruit tree to grow actual fruits this way. Apple trees might take up to 10 years before they even consider giving you apples. And cherries are very hard to grow, they need all kinds of special treatment before they ever start to grow. Of course you can buy the seeds, and then you have a better chance of fruits. But in some countries (like mine!) it’s hard to find seeds of tropical fruits in stores, because the weather doesn’t allow them to grow outside in the winter, so not many people will buy them. I guess then there is internet too, where you can easily buy stuff from overseas, but for me, I love the surprise factor. The only real problem I’ve ran into is the fact that I need to take the tropical plants in the house in wintertime. And since they are getting real big, they take up a lot of space. A heated greenhouse in the garden would be perfect, but since you can only spend your money once, I decided I needed other stuff first. But who knows…in the future …In the meantime, you might want to try this yourself. It will be a year or two before you run into space problems, and by then you could be very rich, live in a tropical climate, or just simply have an extra room. The Office Temp

Waterlily Words and images by Meeli Sonn


Waterlily

words & images by Meeli Sonn

My whole life is mine, but whoever says so will deprive me, for it is infinite. The ripple of water, the shade of the sky are mine; it is still the same, my life. No desire opens me: I am full, I never close myself with refusalin the rhythm of my daily soul I do not desire-I am moved; by being moved I exert my empire, making the dreams of night real: into my body at the bottom of the water I attract the beyonds of mirrors‌


Waterlily

words & images by Meeli Sonn

Growing waterlilies is easy and fun! If you have a container that holds water (your pond), a pot and some firm soil, you can have a waterlily as part of your water garden. Fragrant water lilies are one of the most easily recognized of all the aquatic plants. Beautiful large white or occasionally pink many-petaled flowers float on the water’s surface surrounded by large, round green leaves. Mature Nymphaea odorata leaves are often circular, cleft at the base, smooth to 25 cm across, often purple on the lower surface, with most of the leaves floating. The leaves are attached to flexible underwater stalks rising from thick fleshy rhizomes. The horizontal creeping and branching rhizomes (2-3 cm in diameter) are attached by adventitious roots arising in groups below the leaf bases. The petioles leave crescent-shaped scars on the rhizome when shed. Showy flowers rise on long solitary stalks and are borne at the surface of the water or elevated slightly above it. The white (sometimes pink) fragrant flowers measure up to 25 cm across and have yellow centers surrounded by 25 or more petals. After the flower has finished, the stalk forms a spiral and draws the fruit below the water. The fruit is a capsule 1-2 cm.

Red Waterlily

words & images by Meeli Sonn

Water lily also known as pond lily they can be found all around the world. They have long perennial rootstocks and they send their flower and leaf stalks up to the surface and float onto of the water. The water lily’s can vary in size and color. They can be white, pink, yellow, red, and blue. The white are usually found in North America. Some of the water lily’s open during the day and close at night where others open at night and during the day. Most of close these flowers are pollinated by beetles. When the flower blooms on the first day its pollen is not released but the center is filled with a fluid covering the female parts.


White Waterlily (Nymphaea odorata rosea)

words & images by Meeli Sonn

Nymphaea odorata have an interesting pollination strategy. Each white or pink flower has many petals surrounding both male and female reproductive parts, and is only open during the daytime for three days. On the first morning, the flowers produce a fluid in the cup-like center and are receptive to pollen from other flowers. However, they are not yet releasing pollen themselves. Pollencovered insects are attracted by the sweet smell, but the flower is designed so that when they enter the flower, they fall into the fluid. This washes the pollen o their bodies and onto the stigmas causing fertilization. Usually the insects manage to crawl out of the fluid and live to visit other flowers, but occasionally the unfortunate creature will remain trapped and die when the flower closes during the afternoon. On the second and the third days, the flowers are no longer receptive to pollen, and no fluid is produced. Instead, pollen is released from the stamens. Visiting insects pick up the pollen and transport it to flowers in the first day of the flowering cycle. After the three days the flowers are brought under water by coiling their stalks. The seeds mature under water and after several weeks are released into the water. Water currents or ducks, which eat the seeds, distribute them to other areas. Nymphaea odorata was utilized in many ways by Native Americans

Waterlily

words & images by Meeli Sonn

The Nymphaeaceae are aquatic, rhizomatous herbs. The family is further characterized by scattered vascular bundles in the stems, and frequent presence of latex, usually with distinct, stellate-branched sclereids projecting into the air canals. Hairs are simple, usually producing mucilage (slime). Leaves are alternate and spiral, opposite or occasionally whorled, simple, peltate or nearly so, entire to toothed or dissected, short to long Petiole (botanyiolate), with blade submerged, floating or emergent, with palmate to pinnate venation. Stipules are either present or absent. Flowers are solitary, bisexual, radial, with a long pedicel and usually floating or raised above the surface of the water, with girdling vascular bundles in receptacle. Tepals are 4-12, distinct to connate, imbricate, and often petal-like. Petals lacks or 8 to numerous, inconspicuous to showy, often intergrading with stamens. Stamens are 3 to numerous, the innermost sometimes represented by staminodes. Filaments are distinct, free or adnate to petaloid staminodes, slender and well differentiated from anthers to laminar and poorly differentiated from anthers; pollen grains usually monosulcate or lacking apertures. Carpels are 3 to numerous, distinct or connate. Fruit is an aggregate of nuts, a berry, or an irregularly dehiscent fleshy capsule. Seeds are often arillate, more or less lacking endosperm. As invasive species, the beautiful nature of water lilies has led to their widespread use as ornamental plants. The Mexican water lily, native to the gulf coast of North America, is planted throughout the continent. It has escaped from cultivation and become invasive in some areas, such as California’s San Joaquin Valley. It can infest slow moving bodies of water and is difficult to eradicate. Populations can be controlled by cutting top growth. Herbicides can also be used to control populations using glyphosate and fluridone Symbolism The white water lily is the national flower of Bangladesh and State flower for Andhra Pradesh, India. The Blue waterlily is the national flower of Sri Lanka. It is also the birth flower for July.

Garden images look amazing on the larger format of an iPad case So this is a Garden Tripod step by step guide on how to add the iPad cover to your list of products to sell Without using PS First down load the Template provided by RB It will look like this

Then choose your app... Mac people ~ iWorks Keynote or MS PowerPoint for mac PC people, MS PowerPoint .. Both mac and PC can download open office for free if you don't already have them

keynote

First set the page size to match the template size, add the RB template and reduce the transparency setting. Add the image/s you want to add to the cover, watching that you cover the full template including the red area. Keeping anything important within the central area. Then delete the RB template, save as a image file (JPG) and upload into the Add iPad Cases tab. PowerPoint This app will not let you set the page size, will need to do the same adding the template on to the page, and save the page as a jpg file, then open and crop the extra page away in any image you have.

The End of Fall

I use Photoshop 6, so I don’t know how these would be different in other versions… I used the magnetic lasso tool to select the center area of the template, deleted it, and then used the background eraser and erased that whole area.. then saved the template as a new photoshop file. Then I just drag a picture onto the template to make a new layer, make sure the photo is the bottom layer, and move/resize the photo as needed. I adjust the opacity of the template to see how the edges will look. When I’m done, I delete the template layer and save as a new jpeg file. I find the covers really easy to make using that! :) I did also discover that when you go to resize a picture, there’s a little chain button between the boxes stating the width and height of the image. And if you click that, you can drag the corners of your photo and it will keep the ratio locked so your photo doesn’t get distorted. Or holding the Shift button down while dragging the corners will also keep the ratio locked!

iPad Case ~ Joy Watson

Joy Watson When making a iPad case the first thing you do is to go to the area marked add new work and locate the iPad row and download the template to your editing program. The p ro g r a m I a m u s i n g i s C o re l Paintshop Pro X4. I then open the image which I want to turn into a iPad case and duplicate the image and close the original so I know it is safe. You are now looking at the image you want on the case. I then go to the edit area at the top of the editing program which brings up the word copy and click on it. I then go back to the template so that is now the image you are now looking at and then go to the word edit again and then click of the words that say paste as a new layer and it over lay your image on the template. I then click on the move tool so I can slide the image up or down to where I wish to place the image. I then click on the pick tool which is located with the move tool and take the image to the edge of the red area on both sides. Next I go to the layers area and click on the words merge all (flatten). You will now have one layer. Lastly you

save your work as a jpg with your title and the word iPad. I save my iPad cases in a folder marked Ipad for quick location. Now you are able to upload this as your iPad cover. This is my hint for making a quicker iPad cover. By making your first iPad cover using the template and saving the image as a jpg you learn that the dementions are 2696 Ă— 3305. I then duplicated this image so I could use this now as my own template and coloured the image totally black and named it as iPad template. You then follow the above method and you know every time that the dementions will be correct. Template size is 2696 Ă— 3305 and a portrait size is 2602 Ă— 3906. When the image you want on your iPad is placed over your template the program will place the image so you have a small band of the black showing on both sides of the image. With the pick tool you drag your image to the edge on both sides and then layer merge all (flatten) and save as a jpg.
