Hi Josh, and welcome

I too like many, started collecting plants when I was young. My parents used
to drag ( or I dragged them) to our local horticultural society, when I was
about 10 years old. Even though they were gardeners, I think I took it to a
new level.

Bulbs came along later, like in high school, but I do remember looking at
books on South African bulbs at the Horticultural society library, and
thinking that someday I will grow them once I got a greenhouse.

Today, I do grow many and most bulbs, and strange enough, I'm also creative
director at Hasbro, and worked on Furby. Strange world, indeed.
