    I can hear my edinburgh cousin saying [patiently] the only thing that is scotch is whisky; everything else is scottish.....

    and who am I to argue...

    I like thistles. they tend to grow in the sort of terrain I like, rather than your 'english country garden'; and they have a lot of medicinal uses...

    I like the way you do these posters

    currently windows is serving me up logon pics of smiling animals; these have been photoshopped and it is a pet hate of mine; wild animals only 'smile' when they are stressed and it is best avoided; the homo sapiens smile is unique to the species

    Great pic/poster. I like thistles too, they support quite a number of butterflies and other insects. Loads coming up around here, must be a good year for them.

    Beautiful photo, Gary, but I find the main text too dominant (with all due respect, Mr. Moderator Emeritus Dude, Sir).

    I like it but, agree with Boy about text size.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    Not to be controversial, but I think the text looks great!

    If I had to comment, and I'm absolutely no typographer, I would say the extra bold was a bit overshadowing of the light text, in 'Poster I'.

    I like your composition Gary, with that central thistle.
