Dear bulb society with excess bulbs:
A little tongue in the cheek, but not really. I see an opportunity for
everyone here to make serious money for the society. I'd take that handful
of glorious Pamianthe's in a heartbeat, including paying for the postage.
etc. etc. I've got little lovelies coming up in my tiny greenhouse from my
first seed exchanges and I'm just delighted at the opportunity to grow the
excess shared so generously by members.
