One of the things I like a lot about the way things happen on the PBS forum is that I see all messages at one place. That makes it really easy to decide right away which ones I want to read and which I want to ignore. It also means that should one of the ones I ignored turn hot, I?m likely to notice the volume of responses and then check out what the excitement is all about. Like Jim, the wandering around among topics I really enjoy. I probably don't write as much as I could, but I definitely enjoy reading responses. I find hunting around among topics on a subject sorted site to be a bit more time consuming, and while I do follow along on those subject-structured sites, I find that I read them weekly or monthly instead of daily--and I enjoy reading the PBS messages by email very much every day. With the others who have written to please ask people to not copy all content in a message before sending a reply, I add my agreement: please copy only the content that is pertinent to your response. Please! As for plants in my garden that are flowering right now, I find I have mystery irids (labels lost, or clearly not what I ordered from various vendors), common but delightful Hyacinthoides hybrid in masses with fringecups and English daisies. I let them grow in my lawn areas, then mow them down as they start to set dry down. Camas is at the end of a very nice show this year, Libertia has started flowering, and a couple of dozen lilies have sturdy stems, including Lilium superbum, which I moved from a shady dry site last year to a sunny, damp site last year. I'm starting to track bumblebees in my yard, which visited camas flowers regularly, 2-4 ft off the ground. We had a cold winter here last year, and I was delighted to see that most of my Crinum lilies survived (C. x powellii). They won't flower for weeks, but have numerous healthy leaves despite the onslaught of slugs and snails as the weather warmed up. My Erythronium lilies set seed this year due to nice pollenation weather when they were flowering, so I plan to send seed to the PBS seed exchange.
