    Default Since it's April Fools Day...

    It seemed an appropriate time to get back on the forum. Been real busy with work and other stuff, but hopefully I can keep up now.

    Lots of wonderful stuff in bloom, including my C. Carl Hausermann, my avatar. After taking last year off, he rewarded me this year with 4 spikes and 9 blooms. Such a wonderful fragrance! Many phals and a few paphs and other catts in bloom

    And of course, it's spring! First roses open, cymbidiums in bloom, lilac blooming and iris too. And spikes coming on the first daylily of the season. Such a great time of the year!!

    Hi Diane.....enjoy your beautiful garden. I would love to smell your lilacs.
    Do you grow peonies? Makes me homesick for Ohio and for my mother who celebrated her birthday on April 1st. I have 8 phals in bloom and really enjoy looking at them. My everblooming paph is also in bloom. They have had a lot of neglect over the past several weeks.

    Bruce is right. Funny how we who have never met each other can feel so close to our cyber friends. I've been thinking so much about Katie and Diane and wondering how you were both doing. It's great to hear from you both today!
