    Wow - nice flower shape and color! It's not as spidery as some of them can get. How big are the flowers? Nice job!

    LOL - I know that OMG! feeling. I too have some sleepers from whom I'm awaiting such a surprise.

    How long did the spike grow to? (I used to think that size didn't count, but I'm coming around...)

    May 2005 be filled with happy surprises!
