    A trip to see Lois Ochs

    I went to visit Lois Ochs last weekend to finally see her collection in the summer when everything is growing. The last time I was there, all of her plants were dormant and she was in the process of dividing and potting. I spent about three hours there with Lois and David Conner just shootin’ the breeze about CPs while checking out her plants. She has tons of beautiful stuff but I can only share some photos of a “small sample” of her plants and in no particular order. Sorry, didn’t have time for descriptions.
    Thanks again Lois for the hospitality!!

    you made my plants look so good
    Gr8 picture taking
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?
