I talk about ATP daily and refer to all of you as "My Garden Friends" as in "My Garden Friend says this and that" or "My Garden Friends think I should do this or that" etc.. Everyone knows I hold my Garden Friends at ATP in high regard with great respect just like family. And mostly, they know I have learned what I know from everyone at ATP. Thanks, Dave and Trish for providing us a wonderfully fun place to gather, to share and to learn.

Yeah, I agree!
It's amazing how positive and helpful everyone always is. Especially after experiencing the negativity and anger of other internet forums, ATP is always a breath of fresh air!

Thanks for the welcome everyone. Here's a picture of a crinum that I've waited 5 years for a bloom. It's Summer Nocturne.
