Another great job, floota. I have gone through the photos several times, and I do like Blue Corn Moon, Aaron Brown, River Nile, and Carrick Wildon; my absolute favorite is Jan Zoo, what marvelous colors on that one. Sure would like to hear the story of its naming; speaking of which, most definitely different weirdest name must be Bellybutton Slipknots. Avedon

This image, taken at Ashwood last year, captures the color of But Wait There's More. Later blooms show a doubling effect as in this image and Floota's image. A color that carries across the garden.

Thanks for the pictures again! Aaron Brown is very beautiful, and Jan Zoo looks super, love it a lot.
Love the miniature train with plants and I've never heard or seen Chihuly glass (I don't even know how to say that :)), thanks for the tour!

Jan Zoo was a magnificent bloom! Loved it especially, but there were so many. It is always dangerous to look at yur posts Floota. I don't think there is ever a time I don't add to my wish list, and too often to my buy it now list.

Thanks everyone. Mantis, I really appreciate your posting the image of But Wait There's More, as I'd worried the picture was mis-labeled. But my pic looks like what you posted instead of the registration image. Good to know it sometimes doubles. I actually like the later bloom picture better than the registration picture.

Best wishes,


PS The glass at the Consservatory was created by Dale Chihuly ( Che-hoo -ly is the closet way to say it phonetically.) One little dish of his on display was selling for something like $7800 a couple of years ago, so these huge glass sculptures have to be PRICELESS!
