This is what so often happens, when things are generalised. I am on Facebook. I used to think this way, until I accidentally got on to a group of likeminded people on Facebook. Rarely does my bulb fascination with Rainlilies come up on the PBS. Yet there are a couple of groups on Facebook which concentrate on these, one also including other bulbs. Do I meet up with friends face to face? Too right I do. In fact this week have hardly been at home long enough to do the housework. But have not neglected the family pages, nor the couple of Facebook groups. Being on Facebook the way this is seen by some of you, is a young people's thing mostly, but certainly not all of the young ones. My grandchildren do, and I love to see their FB pages. I see more of them and have more idea what their lives are like, than if it was just face to face. Felix Fadjar Martha is on Facebook. We have got to a chatting stage, which would never have happened if I was not on FB. Bill Dijk, and other well known bulb people. It is change, it is great to reach out to new ways if it enhances the life one has. And has taught me a lot more about my bulbs, enlarged my collection.
