Dave and Trish,
I just want to say how much I appreciate the pod cast, and how much I enjoyed it. Won't commit on the program having to stop because of Dave's bull, thought at first Trish just wasn't buying Dave's comments about Elephant Ears, turned out to be a different kind of Bull, so funny.
Any how, I know it takes effort and time to put on a pod cast, and I really do enjoy the programs, and hope you continue them, just hope others will respond to help keep you encouraged!
I have Crinums, Elephant Ears, Gingers, etc. but I think my favorite are still the Caladiums. Of course as Dave said, can't really pick favorites but we can try.

Thank you so much for the kind words of encouragement! We sure wouldn't do the podcast if there weren't a good number of people who enjoy them. Smiling

And the bull thing really happened! It was indeed serendipitous because I was really glad Trish had the time to look up the elephant ears situation. Thumbs up

Pineapple lilies are another fun 'summer' addition. I wasn't sure if mine were going to come back but I lifted up a foxglove leaf that was covering the spot where the plant was last year and lo and behold there are pineapple lilies coming up!

We were also thrilled that most of our gingers came back after this hard winter. It took them until about two weeks ago to come up, but up they are!
