Hi Diane and everyone:
I am not asking about plants but must say you are quite interesting
and interested. I don't have much to say as yet because I am playing
around with all of the cool Oxalis plants, you know digging around.
For some reason I must look in the bottom of the pots to see how or 
why the plants are growing, especially since I dug up some sort of wild
strawberry with yellow flowers.  That is a long story but at least I was
curious.  Any how... my original question is, are you from the United
several years ago I worked with some one by the name Diane Whitehead.

Can any one tell me what my oxalis will be called if the wild strawberry
with the yellow flowers is cross pollinated? I have just learned that this
is worthless.  Yuk, another weed.
Thanks All,
