    Default Great Prentender...

    Thanks, Tom. Actually, my wife, Betty grew that huge plant. We like it because it puts on a nice show in early spring, rather than winter. She always brings them in for us to enjoy when they are flowering. The Great Pretender, Andy

    Hi, Andy, good to see you here too. I thought I was being cute thinking that Betty was the only one participating on this forum. Now we won't know who is posting...Betty or Andy.
