    That's horrible. I wish I could locate my portable camera, which I took pictures of the plants there.

    I contacted Leo Song. Leo replied, "No, our greenhouses haven't been torn down...yet. They'll probably be here for some time after I retire next September. There are some plans for the area that I will be seeing on Monday. Should be interesting. However, this is no longer my concern as the new faculty will now have to make the decision to use the area as they see fit. This is why I'm moving my CP to the new Huntington Botanical Education Center. I plan to devote most of my future efforts with plants there. The Huntington's older set of greenhouses have already been torn down to make way for a new gallery. They definitely were very long in tooth. Perhaps these are the
    ones you heard about."

    I can assure you the Fullerton Greenhouse has not been torn down, and there are still plenty of CP's in there. That reminds me, I should go pay Leo a visit. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
