Members' Photo Gallery

We want this website to be a place for all our members. To this end, we have set up a Members' Photo Gallery. To give some structure to this, we have decided to split the gallery into the four seasons. Please send us your favourite photos taken in the current season. The photos can be taken in the Botanic Garden, your garden, or elsewhere. You can also add a short descriptive caption or let me know what caption you would like added.

So here is your chance to be David Bailey (not that gardens were his thing, I think) and email them to me at membershipsecfog@gmail.com.
