Awww, I just had to post this. How often do you get to see two of the formost Drosera experts and naturalists side by side? Tamlin is often teased with the names of King of the Dews, or God of Sundews (its sort of a running joke here on the forums) but THESE two men are the real royalty, dirty knees and all. We know why they have dirty knees, don't we!
Anyone growing Drosera mannii? Yup, that's him. He discovered the plant. How does a man find and recognize a plant with a rosette the size of a dime, and be aware that it is a new species? Well, on his knees I guess. Maybe thats how they preserve their *childlike* wonder for these plants!
I am working on Phill to get him to PLEASE start marketing his video CD of CP from the Northern Territories which he sent me for review last summer. Guys, you have to see this! If you love Drosera you will not be able to close your mouth. There are scenes where he is driving through a brush fire, and through puddles we call "ponds" here in the States! The scenery is incredible and there are even native..... critters. That's crocodile country! I mean, man, you gotta REEAAALLY love CP, right? Well, both of these men do, and their contributions of knowledge and generosity have greatly enriched the CP world community over the years. They go where few men go, and bless us all with their sharing.
Phill would be telling me to "cut that crap" about now, so I'll let it go at this. But I had to share this photo, which as I said is used strictly without permission.
I figure if they don't like it they'll sue me for all I'm worth, (and it'll serve them right).
Thanks to Adnedarn for hosting this photo so I could share it!
