Some nice pics, I like Elfin Shadows, Lucy! I used to have Batik, but it died out. Temps dropping again today, but supposed to be nice by Friday with both 50 degrees, and sunshine! That might just melt the snow off the beds so I can see what's going on with them. Keep the pictures coming! It's still a long way to spring here.
