    Thanks for the memories Bill, we used to visit Longwoods several times a year when we lived in MD. They have a very nice orchid room which always smells heavenly. I was given a cutting of a Chalice vine, like the one you have pictured in the second set of pic, rooted and looking for a place in our garden. They are so lovely.

    I really do have to visit there someday.

    Beautiful flowers. Makes me wish spring would hurry and come here in Arkansas.

    Cheers,
