Howdy All,

I posted this recently to one of the other lists and thanks to Mary Sue,
who still had a copy of it, I thought I would post a modified copy here in
case any of you out there don't know me.

I am over on the other side of the world from many of you (figuratively,
not literally <grin>) in Australia where it is winter.  There are Galanthus
and Cyclamens flowering, Helleborus in bud, Fritillarias just poking their
noses up and various Narcissus in bud, flower, or just shooting.  As people
can see from my signature I collect far too many things as I have only a
tiny little space to grow them.  I am married (my Wife's names is Yvonne)
with two kids (their names are Riley (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) and
Elfinraer (Maltese terrier) and they might as WELL be my kids even if they
are only dogs) and I live on a small corner block in a suburb of Canberra,
the Capital of Australia.

Currently we're trying to work out how to double-stack the garden to try to
fit more in <grin>.  I do actually wish it was possible so that I could
grow more.  Doesn't stop me from buying more bulbs though.  There is always
SOMEWHERE that I can fit something in.  It is starting to get a tad crowded
out there though.

I am a member of the IBS, RHS and AGS as well as many of the local Canberra
gardening groups.  Like I said, I collect too many things.  It is
interesting to see names I know from some of the various Societies and
Yahoogroups that I belong to and it will be great to talk to you all about
our bulbs over coming months.
