I wish I lived there... I have school on top of that, but I still wish I could go.
Also- I looked up that portland mercury article. I can't believe that such a slanderous and condemning article would be published. However, I also saw a few familiar names in the comment section from this site pointing out the flaws in the article.
October's meeting was a lot of fun with a good turnout and all of us braving the less-than-ideal temperatures outside while knowing that we would probably be meeting inside for the next 6 months or so.
Thank you! I would have to agree about the generosity. For me it's more a matter of it being easier to bring them to the meetings than to sell them and I can't bear to toss them into the compost. I find that I often go with the resolution that I won't bring anything new home with me this time - and then I break down 'cuz "I've always wanted one of those..."
Sadly not, though I did try. You'll notice my menziesii didn't make the cut either. Getting sufficiently good photos under the dim lighting of the pub is certainly a challenge. I try not to think too hard about all the really gorgeous plants that I end up not having clear photos of when it is all over.
