Hi Diana,

Another nice post! Jacob and I both love these curly leaves, and I know
this young friend of yours, who happen to be our friend as well. :)

The Albuca spiralis on your page is what I would call Albuca namaquensis.
Albuca spiralis has glandular hairs on the leaves, whereas A. namaquensis
does not.

If you want to move to a new site, try Google Blog. I have used it and it's
very good and highly recommend it for you. You should have no problem with
formatting with Google Blog.

Happy planting!
