Laura is a wonderful friend who generously shared 3 cuttings of Plumeria with me - THANK YOU, Laura!!!!
I think Laura has been very generous to many of us!!! It is nice of her to pass the fever around. Thanks again Laura!!! You are sweet person and an inspiration.
I do agree 101%. Laura is a very wonderful person I have ever come across on gardenweb not just because she shared some cuttings with me. I like her posts ,the way she answers and responds to each of our questions is much appreciated by all of us. One day I want to visit her garden as she we both live in VA. She is the one who got me addicted to plumeria's. My collection that started with 1 plumeria has not went up to 12 plumeria's. Thanks, Laura!
I couldn't agree more. She is my model for generosity and sharing with others by exchanging info on this forum and/or by gifting cuttings and seeds.
I have to agree with everything posted about Laura. Her posts are always insightful, generous, respectful and full of expert experience. I've learned a lot from her participation in this forum. Thanks Laura!
Yup. She's a sweetheart! Always kind and helpful and willing to share her knowledge with others.
Are you sure you're grateful if you arleady have 12 plumies like me? Laugh.
I can blame Kemistry for my obsession. ;)
Robert, I mistyped earlier... my plumeria collection went up to 12 now and I am afraid it continues to grow. Thanks to everyone who post beautiful pics and rave about them on this forum..
So so true what everyone here is saying about Laura, I haven't posted much recently but couple years ago was more active here and before there was a separate forum on Adeniums, she kindly was so sweet to share some mix! Very sweet person and Yes, love the way she answers to everyone's questions... But, haven't had the chance to get any cuttings though... hhhmm.. lol!!
I couldn't agree with you all more. They broke the mold when they made her. She's one in a million. Love ya, Laura. Thanks for lunch!! Peg
Yes, Laura is one of the sweetest people I have met here on this forum, and yes also one of the most generous. She has shared cuttings, knowledge, and tips. Her and I have grown to be great friends. I am glad she shares this side with so many here. We truly have a treasure here. Thank you Laura for just being..YOU!
Yes, she is truly one-of-a-kind! Laura sets a great example of how to share everything from plants to simple enthusiasm for everyone's exciting moments in the garden. The world could use more Lauras!
Laura is an extremely sweet, helpful lady. I had so many questions about Al's gritty mix and she helped me get it right, finally! Her help, as well as Al's was invaluable to me. All of mine are not potted in Gritty and looking good, enjoying the warm weather and sunshine after a winter in the garage.
Lots of leaves on most of them and 5 already have bloom spikes,
There's not enough space here for all the nice things that I could say about Laura. From the first time I posted I remember her very warm and welcoming reply. She's been such an inspiration since - not just with plumerias (which I love talking to her about - Laura - I haven't washed the car yet!!) to inspiration on just how to be a kind and generous person. That's something we could use so much more of these days, when there's so much meanness everywhere - she proves that kindness matters. Here's a heartfelt thank you from me, too, Laura!

Please wash the car... this will make you feel so much better and give the trees and the sellers a break!! LOL.. How was the Bday party? Hope to see you around more Simi!! Thank you, my friend!!
Purdee... Talk about one who is special... You have been so kind and it is I who has learned from you. We both like to give and give to those less fortunate. That truly says something about a person in my eyes. Thank you for being who you are and what you stand for. I am glad to call you friend...
You all have made my night. I remember when i wanted to show my best friend a book that these kids made for me in CA. It was a simple book that somone put together from their class of say 200 kids. These wonderful kids wanted to thank me for such simple things like sample lotions from the hotels, soaps and little things like that. They were the sweetest notes of thanks from these wonderful kids who have nothing and think that i sent them boxes of gold when all i did was send them extras that me and my crew mates save all month. (Shampoo, lotion, soap), I can get teary just thinking about how kind and thoughtful for them taking the time to thank me for just a simple act of kindness..i loved the colorful notes... it all goes around. I truly believe that, so when i see all of you saying these nice things, i have a hard time believing them, but i will thank you anyway. I believe in giving and i feel better to give than to receive,. When i do receive.. it means the world to me. Especially from friends.. Nothing means more than gifts from the heart. ;-) I love the glass one.. truly amazing. Thank YOU!!!
ok.. April Fool's Day is almost over...
Thank YOU EVERYONE!!!
You all have made my day and then some..
Have a wonderful night.
We're lucky to have her 'set the tone' and 'raise the bar' on this Forum!
Because of her gentle and giving nature, it's easy for anyone to feel fortunate to know Laura well enough to count her as a friend. She quietly goes about helping whomever she can, whenever she can, almost always extracting only a promise to 'pay it forward' as her preferred form of remuneration. I know there have been times when there were no thanks, or even an acknowledgement for her having made an extraordinary effort on behalf of someone she barely knew, but that hasn't stopped her from regrouping and working toward the betterment of the next person who needs help at the very next opportunity. That says something about her.
It's wonderful to see her friends rally to compliment and thank someone who deserves it as much as Laura does. Count my voice among the chorus of those that would offer praise. Unquestionably, GW is a better place for her collective AND individual contributions to the gardening community.
Laura - I know you feel blessed by all the wonderful comments ..... and you should.
CHEERS right back to you! Thank you. I appreciate that very much! ;-)
Al.. What a very nice comment.. Truly touched by what you said. It means a lot coming from one who continues to always help others. You are one who gives so much to the GW community and I know others are so grateful for all that you do, including ME! Thank you, you made my night.
You are right, I do feel blessed by the comments and by having such wonderful friends like you. ;-)
Have a wonderful night everyone!
