    Firstly,I have read about your husband Phillip. I am so sorry about your loss.

    As much as I love watching hummingbirds,those little devils are keeping me busy to really sit back and enjoy them. After 20 years of "planting strictly for hummingbirds" and no chemicals usage anywhere within the property,I have to cook/clean and be a taxi service to the rehab center. All the cats are belled and are only allowed out after dark for few hours during summer and early fall while babies are learning how to become a full fledge hummers. Some hummers are given name,bully boy,water ho.....etc.

    Off to SEPOS this afternoon,if I get nice pictures of the exhibits I will post them.
    Thank you for the kind words about Phillip; he was a big presence on OT (you should go back and read some of the threads entitled "Bigfoot" to really get an idea). It strikes me that you have done with hummingbirds what most orchidists (if not all) do with their orchid babies - which is, obviously, to turn one's life inside out to better grow, collect, cater to, nurse, etcetera - oh, and then collect more - the plants (or birds) (or fish), until life gets just a tad unmanageable. It tends to be in our natures, and if you've got a 24-hour humidifier going for your Rens, I will be delighted to see what you picked up at SEPOS, beside snapshots! Hope you had fun. I'd love to get to that show one of these days. By the way, do you prefer Ms. ikwill, or just plain "ikwill"? It's an odd one, but we're willing to go along with you until you reveal a little - just a little - more about yourself to us.
