    I'm pretty sure the Yukidian will be visisted with the keiki paste at some point... Be fun to have a couple of them in one pot for that huge full display! First, of course, it needs to bloom pretty!

    When I went to the warehouses in Half Moon Bay in early Dec, my contacts were bemoaning the lack of short-stemmed white phals to use for holiday flower arrangements--when we found some by going through the countryside to several greenhouses, we'd buy all they had. Seems everyone wants the Yukidian long-stemmed, big-flowered ones. I love those also, but I can appreciate the need for the shorter-stemmed, smaller-flowered varieties because they are so useful in decorating. Combining them with mercury glass and candles is really beautiful.
