    Wow, a real beauty, Gin. Can't wait to smell the fragrance. I bought one from Diane last spring. It has 8 new growths; four of those have bud sheaths and the other four came along just a month ago. Maybe blooms from then too this late fall!
    Thanks for sharing the pic. Whats the weather like up there now?
