One noticeable difference between this Garden Writers Association Symposium and the one I attended in 2007 was the increased presence of video recording. Not just the movie function on the ubiquitous digital camera, but more sophisticated set-ups were also used. Here’s a sampling of what’s been posted on the web:
I just happened to be nearby when David Perry recorded Riz Reyes’ extemporaneous tribute to Juniper Level Botanic Garden and Plant Delights Nursery. I didn’t realize at first that David was filming Riz, which is why you’ll catch a glimpse of me and hear my one-liner. Riz’s enthusiasm was amazing to watch.
Shirley Bovshow was one busy lady in Raleigh, filming seemingly non-stop. What you’ll see below is the trailer, or appetizer, for her more involved Garden World Report.
Be patient, and you’ll catch my cameo appearance near the end.
