If you look at the latest issue, there is an article about 'Plant Collections', and page 18 has an (admittedly not terribly flattering) picture of me Smiling

that's even better! It's the recognition though that is a good thing to get, pay is great but if no one recognizes how good you are at what you do, there is little satisfaction. So, paid or not, I'm thrilled you got the recognition you deserve.
