    I was lucky they bloomed at the same time.

    I like them both too! Nelson, if you're really bumming over the light one and don't wish to keep it in your collection...well...hint, hint, hint!

    Both really lovely flowers... I like the first one for the purity the white gives it, and the second for the dramatic effect of the darker browns... of course, if i wasn't allowed to sit on the fence and had to choose one... I'd go for the lighter colours... there's plenty enough dramas in my life

    Default Thank you, ladies and gentlemen.

    But Julie, you know very well it is next to impossible for me to send you any of my plants.

    Actualy, it is probably a good thing he can't send us plants - he wouldn't have any left, as we covet everything he shows us, and we don't have the room or conditions for all of them!

    But the picture book..... mmmm would love it!
