Hello everyone,

I just joined the PBS mailing list, though I have been
reading the
archives intermittently for the past few years.

I have had an avid interest in plants beginning at a
very young age
and started growing bulbs when I was 6.  Amaryllids
have a firm hold
on my heart and my most favourite genera are
Brunsvigia and

I grew up in Southern California, spent a few years in
Portugal, Cape
Verde Islands, and now I live in Honolulu, Hawai'i.  I
worked as a
Landscape Designer in Los Angeles and Orange Counties
for 5 years but
now I am 27 years old and enrolled in school studying
for a career as
a botanist.

Besides bulbs I grow many orchids (mostly vandaceous
and angraecoids),
rare palms, cycads and native plants.  Most of my bulb
collection is
in Santa Barbara, California where a dear friend takes
care of them.

I am happy to begin participating in the group!
