That's some darn fine photography Cal. Outstanding!

Cal, beautiful banner!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thanks everyone for all your nice comments. I'm hoping to have many more of blooms
to share this year. Smiling

We've finally had some nice rain here, and more coming in a few days. So will plant
all the baby S.oxy's in the ground asap so they can get a little nitrogen, and
form some good roots before the hot weather comes in July. Green Grin!
