OT: I felt like a kid in a candy store

karyn1(7a)December 27, 2011

I just got back from Gardino's Nursery (www.rareflora.com). They have some of the most amazing plants. They grow tropicals that can't be found anywhere else and their private collection is to die for. Regina's speciality is hoyas and Sid's is everything else. There's so much more growing then is listed on their site. I picked up about a dozen new plants. I'll post varieties and pics when I get home.

I've also collected cuttings and seeds from around the house and neighborhood. Kathy I have some seeds that I think you'll like. The weather's great. It's been in the low 80's with low humidity and a nice breeze. It's warmer then normal back home but not warm enough that I want to be there. We'll be back on the 2nd. At least I'll only have to deal with Washington weather for a few weeks before heading down south again. A happy healthy New Year to all.

Sounds nice. We haven't even had a freeze yet in NE FL. We were supposed to get one tonight, finally, but now they are saying 40 instead. I'm not complaining lol. I haven't even got everything cut back and into the gh yet.

Wonderful Karyn. After Christmas my sister from NY headed to Boca Raton and I headed home. I wish I could have gone with her.
Happy New Year !
