    Default Phrag Peruflora's Spirit - and a quick response to catttan from the TalkTalk page


    First - a response to catttan's last message on my TalkTalk thread:

    SO good to hear from you, Yew! I'm so scattered and so busy these days that I haven't kept up any of my internet connections - I'm hoping this will change soon. Sorry to hear you're having rotten weather - it got unusually cold here mid-month - hence the emergency greenhouse on my living room floor. I suppose it's time to feed the birds now.


    And now, a photo of the first bloom on my new Peruflora's Spirit:

    It's a VERY bright color, but the second bloom looks to be pinker - photo to come.

    And now, indulge me - A couple photos of my fabulous kids - Henry, the coolest trumpet player Cornell University Marching Band has ever had:

    And Abby and Henry up at the Cornell/Harvard Football Game a couple weeks ago - a rare photo of them together!

    That's a beautiful phrag! Great color. I'm just learning how to grow those.

    What a lovely Phrag, Maura! Can't seem to get any phrags from my regular vendors. BTW can't seem to view the other 3 attachments.
