New Member Intro

I am a new member to the list.  I was encouraged to join by my next 
door neighbor Tom Wells.

While I have always been interested in gardening and "specimen" type 
plants my interest has intensified in the last couple of years.

About 7 years ago Joann, my wife, said "I would like to have a koi 
pond".  I built a 3000 gallon koi pond that is a great comfort in our 
small garden.  Three miniature longhaired Dachshunds rule our garden 
and home.

My professional life was spent at California State Polytechnic 
University, Pomona.  I began there as a photographer and finished as a 
multimedia producer.

For many years I pursued an intense interest in personal or "fine art" 

Tom Wells, a member of the list, has been responsible for supplying me 
with almost all of the several hundred Clivia seeds and seedlings we 
have in cultivation.  I also have many bulbs he has let/ask me 

I am looking forward to learning more about this very interesting area 
of horticulture.  Thank you in advance for your help and information.
