    Congratulations on your second anniversary and on your success; well-deserved, in my humble opinion.
    As to the “bad news”, don’t apologize for needing to have a life! I, for one, know that your travels will no doubt result in even more and better photos for us to admire.

    i can’t tell you how much I value–and learn from-this site. Today’s Ribes is a perfect example: a beautiful image that begins my day in a wonderful way and a profile of a plant that I was not aware of. Opening your email is the first thing I do every day. Thank you for such a wonderful gift!

    Daniel, I’ll be looking forward to daily posts again this fall. I do photo research for garden books. This site starts my day and makes me smile. Have a great summer!

    I add my acknowledgements to the ones above- and I agree that this website is a daily joy and window into the lushness of our landscapes- and the hidden treasures that I might never see otherwise. Have a good and refreshing rest, Daniel- I KNOW you stop and smell the roses!

    one of my top 20 favorite plants — thanks, Daniel for this luscious photo of Ribes sanguineum. Love it!

    It’s such a great site–I’m just happy that daily photos will continue. You can’t be tied to the site every day of the year!! The 24×7 mentality is for machines, not humans.

    Are there any plants that put forth
    a bloom every day of the year?

    Daniel, ditto all the above comments.
    Katherine, in answer to your question, I refer you to the photo of April 2nd (Isomeris arborea). The bladderpod in my backyard has been in bloom continuously for 3+ years. Can’t say as to whether it actually puts forth a new bloom every day, I don’t watch it THAT closely.

    Congratulations on two wonderful years. By all means back off when you need to. We appreciate this so much. It’s one of my first views of the day too.

    For those of us on Salt Spring Island, the blooming of Ribes sanguineum inevitably coincides with the arrival of the Rufous hummingbirds and the remainder of the Annas (some never leave).
    I am fortunate to have a Ribes on my property. Spring wouldn’t be the same without it attracting traffic jams of hummers. Thanks for introducing this lovely currant to the rest of the world. Love this site.

    I discovered this web site a couple of years ago when I was looking for info about Lantana..it just happened to be the photo of the day the day before! I immediately signed up! I feel like an interloper – everyone seems to have such knowledge and clever comments. I enjoy this site immensely and I thank you, Daniel.

    Just today, I drove by a large shrub and wondered, what could it be? And lo and behold the answer was right there on BPotD!! Thank you, Daniel, for the continuing surprises and plant knowledge – a daily treat, for sure. Wishing you a great Spring/Summer season with an abundance of photo pleasures! Also, I really enjoy the access to past photos right at the top of the page.

    I’ll add my thanks for all the time and energy you put into this site. I love learning about the plants you showcase, and as a botanist I am continually impressed by the breadth and accuracy of the information you provide here. I also completely understand the need to travel during the growing season. Please, enjoy your summer weekends, as I’m sure I will enjoy vicariously experiencing your travels in future BPotD postings.
