Jay Norris, co-founder of Ravenvision, has once again had his work featured on the cover of the Orchids magazine (formerly known as the AOS Bulletin). This is the official publication of the American Orchid Society. In addition to the cover, the July 2010 issue features an 8 page spread by Jay on the newest AOS Trustee Mario Ferusi. Photographs of Mario in his greenhouse and several of his awarding wining plants (more of which are in our image bank) illustrate the article penned by Jay.
