Hi Kin! I know. That is one of the reasons I picked this shot. I knew Giancarlo slightly and so admired his great love of plants. It may have surpassed my own. LOL. He had great plant needs too! We had a few plant transactions along the DG way. I have heard his garden was fantastic. I think it is great we can say hello again to him thru his photos and remember him this way.

Hi Kell I went through some of his photos and threads, it was obvious he had a passion for gardening. It was a pleasure going through his photos and remembering him again.

He was a huge collector of plants. I often wonder what happened to his garden. I beleive he got sick suddenly and then left to higher grounds quickly. I hope it all was taken care of. Must have been so sad for him to leave it all.
