    You know I love this one!Just lovely. I'm sure it has to be highly fragrant. Remind me in the spring I have the perfect companion for this one. Almost the exact opposite in coloring. It has several offsets and I'll send you one.

    Yay! Conveniently, it is producing a keiki. I will put your name on it.
