If all goes according to plan, a friend and I will be joining a horticultural tour to New Zealand in Jan. 2019! Very excited about this. Dennis and Nolan, what town do you live in? Maybe we'll be nearby. My friend is the horticulturalist. Me, I'll be taking lots of reference photos.

Thanks, Nolan!

Val, I'd love to scoop up all my PB friends and bring you with me. What a grand time we would have!  :)

I know what you mean, Susan.  That's what I would do if I won the lottery.  Take us all to meet Dennis and Nolan.

Sadly   :'(  I have had to cancel my plans. Have had some financial surprises this week that make such a venture impossible right now. I'm hoping another opportunity will present itself. So disappointed.

 :( That is sorry news... guess I can stop the contortionist classes and forget the trunk.  :sweat:

I truly do hope things get sorted and this will just be a postponement. Never mind, you've still got all of us here!  :heeha:

Cheers, Val

Oh Susan - I'm so sad you've had to cancel your trip to NZ...it sounded amazing. Fingers crossed this can be rescheduled for another time in the near future...
Cheers,
Sharon
