Jan and Dave Dobak have been looking at plants and gardening longer than they can remember.  They have travelled and photographed in North America, South Africa, Britain and Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, and Argentina. Avid joiners, they are members of North American Rock Garden Society, Alpine Garden Society, Scottish Rock Garden Club, Native Plant Society of Oregon, Washington Native Plant Society, Hardy Plant Society of Oregon, Botanical Society of South Africa, and Western Australia Native Orchid Society and Conservation Group. Their in-basket is always full. They garden on a small city lot in Portland, Oregon.
