"Van takes really wonderful flower pics.
I especially enjoy the orchid photos after he has been to an orchid show. A much appreciated co-admin of the popular FLOWERS group ... ' good on yah, Van ' Yours in friendship, Chrissie"

"Van's photo's are great. It's a simple way to start a testimonial - but it's true.
He could, I suspect, make the most humble leaf, look very grand indeed! I very much enjoy browsing his photostream and I'm sure most botanically minded folk could lose track of time in here.
The unusual or the unnoticed come to life in these photos!"

"There were flowers. Flowers everywhere. He couldn't sleep, so strong was their sickly sweetness, like two handfuls of buds shoved down his throat, like four pounds of pollen in a black leather hood."

"Van's photos are superb! He has the eye of an artist combined with the mind of a botanist and the soul of a gardener. I always know I'll find a favorite or two (or more!) when I visit his pages."
