I was reading a post from several years ago and saw that you mentioned you were born in Siberia. Care to share your story? It sounds intriguing.....
sorry - I would prefer to post on plant issues.
If you want to hear more - come to Austin for AVSA Convention, or to Toronto to Gesneriads - find me - and we can swap personal and plant stories and share a bottle of Cabernet.
I was planning on Austin but life intervened and I spent Easter week in the hospital so this year will be spent recuperating and swearing at my violets that never do as I expect them to. Maybe next year, though!
P,S, Were you in Detroit last year?
Nope - I missed Detroit and Philly. Last time I was at the AVSA convention was Raleigh.
That's a pity you needed to cancel your plans. Austin has good programs planned - and there are so many great growers in TX - the Show will be a blast.
