My NALS Quarterly Bulletin with a special front cover. Did anyone else see this?

Since these arrive at different times at different places, I was wondering if it had been "noticed" yet.

Well, I don't know if I'll ever see it, our mail service has become so horrible here. I'll wait until 10 or 11:00 tonight and go check again. That's about when it comes, if at all.

Even though I tend to agonize about these things I did have a good time doing the interview. Tracey and I have known each other (from a great distance!) for about 13 years now by my count. She blames me for her lily seed growing addiction Hilarious! .

I think you'll be pleased, Connie. You are an amazing lily creator and it only made sense to begin my "series" with you. You have been encouraging and generous with your seed and your knowledge.

Can't wait until you see it. Mail delivery certainly has changed. Yours sounds to be worse off than mine.

Connie, we all have someone to blame for our seed problems. Rolling on the floor laughing and sometimes it's more than one. But congrats Connie! Well deserved picture on the cover and story.

I believe all of the photos in the article are also in the 2018 seedling thread here. That cover photo was a pretty good choice to use there. Thanks to Tracey for coming up with the idea of doing these interviews. I can't wait for the next one. Who is next I wonder...

I'm going to keep the interviews as an undercover operation. Hilarious! If those who have been a part of it so far want to tell, that's up to them. But until they are featured, mums the word on my end....unless perhaps you happened to be somewhere where I was actually conducting an interview, which is a possibility.

A good learning experience. And focus on all ranges of expertise, eventually. It's been fun. I have learned something new each time.

I look forward to reading it, when it finally gets here... (post from the US can be quite slow, whereas the UK to AU is 10 days or less).

Now that I've read the rest of the NALS QB, that was a very well written introduction of yourself as the new Seed Ex Coordinator/Chief/Leader/all around Fantastic Guy! (And a great photo, too) Still have to send my seed in - good thing you have a deadline.....

Incidentally, Conrad and Lloyd (in the pic, page 12) are the Wisconsinites that gave me those incredible Lilium tsingtauense bulbs. https://garden.org/thread/view...

Thank you Rick. Though you are too kind! I absolutely hate having my picture taken!

I remember talking with Conrad and Lloyd at the show this year. They were some pretty nice guys.
