Howdy All, I posted this recently to one of the other lists and thanks to Mary Sue, who still had a copy of it, I thought I would post a modified copy here in case any of you out there don't know me. I am over on the other side of the world from many of you (figuratively, not literally <grin>) in Australia where it is winter. There are Galanthus and Cyclamens flowering, Helleborus in bud, Fritillarias just poking their noses up and various Narcissus in bud, flower, or just shooting. As people can see from my signature I collect far too many things as I have only a tiny little space to grow them. I am married (my Wife's names is Yvonne) with two kids (their names are Riley (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) and Elfinraer (Maltese terrier) and they might as WELL be my kids even if they are only dogs) and I live on a small corner block in a suburb of Canberra, the Capital of Australia. Currently we're trying to work out how to double-stack the garden to try to fit more in <grin>. I do actually wish it was possible so that I could grow more. Doesn't stop me from buying more bulbs though. There is always SOMEWHERE that I can fit something in. It is starting to get a tad crowded out there though. I am a member of the IBS, RHS and AGS as well as many of the local Canberra gardening groups. Like I said, I collect too many things. It is interesting to see names I know from some of the various Societies and Yahoogroups that I belong to and it will be great to talk to you all about our bulbs over coming months. Cheers.
