Needs the photos

I love the idea and audio only is better than nothing, but this podcast is nothing more than the audio from a series of lectures that were presented with photos, which are referred to frequently. It's rather frustrating.

A wonderful spring in winter

I love to garden but, I wasn't sure if the hobbie would translate well to podcasting. I was pleasantly surprised. Listening to the Gardens Illustrated Q&A lectures put me in a warm, spring mood throughout the freezing winter day. The enthusiasm of the speakers is contagious. I wait for more podcasts from Gardens Illustrated Magazine.
