Kayaking for those so inclined. I had to move many to the down below the deck area so room on our tiny deck. roxanne

many brought blooms and cuttings and most left with a happy smile and cutting in hand. The nice man who got me going on these brought us the wonderful cutting on the table. This was our 3rd annual. Trying to get better each year. mahalo, roxanne

I had to laugh when I read Seminude was there Rox146. sometimes the unintentional is so funny. In texting, I find some totally inappropriate words come up with spellcheck on! anyway, glad you all had a good time with SimiDude or SemiNude! Mary

Mary, I busted up when I read that. We've all been there with auto spellcheck, Roxanne, we've all typed simple things that ended up kind of shocking! "Seminude" - too funny.

I am personally going to be calling you Seminude from now on, George.

At first I thought it was a new nickname Rox made up for you based on your apparel choice at the luau. The minds reels...LOL!

Rox, your home is drop-dead gorgeous! And how wonderful of you to share it with everyone.

The right hand side of the down below deck/growing area keeps going off with the right amount of sun....I need to put some of these big ones in the ground next season and thin the herd in the courtyard. roxanne

Hi Roxanne,

It sounds like fun was had by all, but how could it not be with so many great plumerias and people gathering together! I saw your comment on the 25th about starting a small informal group, and that's something I was actually talking with "SimiDude" (cracking me up on that one!!!) about a few weeks ago. If you're still considering, please let me know and maybe we could put something together. I'm sure there's enough interest.

Cheers!
Dan

roxanne - sounds like a plan is forming! Yes, informal is the way to go. Maybe we start with a list of interested people to see how many we have (or just pull from your luau list?) and go from there. VC is relatively small, so it shouldn't be too much trouble for those nearby. We are talking plumeria after all! If you'd like, send me and email and we'll toss about some more ideas to move it forward. Aloha!

Cheers!
Dan

Thank you! I sent a message to SimiDude. I had already committed to a friend for this Saturday to attend an event with her. Not know it was going to be from 9-4 and thinking it was just a couple of hours... So depending on the time of your meeting which I really would love to attend, I may try and slip away. Thank you for the welcome!
