Just got the winter issue and another gem - great mix of articles and I especially enjoyed Elin's "Our" Mountains and Trond's sojourn 'Among Giants'. Thanks to all.

I garden in a relatively hot and dry region (for the UK!), with an annual rainfall of around 25", winter lows of -10°C and summer highs of 30°C.
Pleased to say that the latest issue of the Quarterly went up online early this morning.
Apologies are due for the delay in its appearance - it was originally scheduled for March 20 - 24 but illness resulted in the delay. The printed issue is due to be posted today.
Just reading through the summer issue - another great read! Really liked Dave's look around his Southland home and Loren's "Play Pen"

Fall Issue of Quarterly online today
Sorry I've not been posting lately. Attending the meeting on Santa Fe plus a couple of extra weeks over in the US kept me busy. Anyway the fall issue of the Quarterly is posted online today and the paper copies are in the process of being dispatched so should start arriving with people in a few days ... or weeks if like me you live a long way from Kansas (where our printer is and from where the issues are dispatched).
A lightning response from one online reader has pointed out (because they thought it was a great-looking plant) that the caption relating to the picture on the back cover of the issue is incorrect. In fact, the magnificent close-up is by Dave Toole of Aciphylla spedeni. Sorry about that.
WINTER QUARTERLY DISPATCHED AND ONLINE FOR MEMBERS
For a whole lot of reasons I've not been posting lately but the Quarterly was on time with dispatch from Kansas on December 20 and the issue online at the same time. As you'll see there's been a redesign of the cover and one or two mastheads.
This issue is a Great Lakes Special looking forward to the Annual Meeting in Ann Arbor and there's also an article remembering a trip that Barry Starling took with Boyd Kline a good few years ago.
Best Wishes for Christmas or your seasonal holiday.
SPRING ISSUE OF THE QUARTERLY
Despite being completely wiped out (with pneumonia) for the whole of January, the Quarterly is on track for dispatch from the printer on or around March 20 which means that many, if not most, North American members will receive it by Easter and the rest of us should get it pretty soon after.
The proofreaders enjoyed it which is always a good sign!
I have to say, I don't think I could muster that kind of dedication, Malcolm.
We are so fortunate to have people like yourself in the Society!

Impressive "stickability", Malcolm. Well done.
We're very sorry to hear you have been so poorly and hope you are now feeling very much better.
