Hi Jim, greetings from Australia. Wishing all a great growing season in 2007 and also happy holidays. Christmas was lovely here. We had some much needed rain which helped slow down the bushfires that are threatening our state of Victoria at present. One of my friends has just given me a $50.00 gift voucher for a plant nursery. I'm excited - I wonder what I can buy?? Best wishes to all and good health also. regards, Bill Richardson, Ixia King Summer 7c. to 32c. at present West Gippsland, Victoria, Australia email@example.com http://www.angelfire.com/ri/ixia/ "Almost any garden, if you see it at just the right moment, can be confused with Paradise" Henry Mitchell ----- Original Message ----- From: "J.E.
