    Ellen Bosanquet should make a terrific close up - I can hardly wait for it to emerge

    "Ellen Bosanquet" 4 of 7 blooms open, 4 1/2" tip to tip. Smells like faint Gardenia.

    John,

    It looks similar to the one that I dug up from my Grandmother's house in Palacios, TX.

    See what you think...

    Ann --- It is the same I'm having trouble with my camera and RED and that was as good as I got but, it is an "Ellen". Although my pix is not quite right I still like the pix. Looks kinda sexy.

    Indeed!!!!

    Sort of dreamy...

    But then again, I have always been a dreamer, and I still firmly believe that one day they will come true!

    Just wait until you see a huge clump of those blooming in your yard, all at once. I don't have a huge clump, but there are two houses that are on my way to school that have have enormous clumps. They were absolutely gorgeous!!!!

    And I dream of mine looking like that someday.

    Thank you for taking those photos John ! I'm still in awe of technology and am amazed at the thought of being able to walk outside somewhere in the world, photograph a plant,and in minutes send it around the world ! Thanks for bringing your garden to us !

    What is the blue car in the background? It reminds me of a Mazda Eunos 30X I owned until recently. Of course cars there are different to here, its just looking at the photo it reminded me of it

    Abby,
    That is my daughter's Mitsubishi Eclipse. Nice little car. I drove it when my old truck was torn up. I wish it was a little better on gas though. The old truck can go forever on a tank. How much is gas there?

    Seed for Crinum "Peppermint" are egg shaped. The pix is poor but, the first seed is in the center and others are forming around it. The seed is planted by just pushing it into the soft wet ground and I even let a little show, they don't take too long to germ.

    The following is Crinum "J. C. Harvey" a light pink smallish bloom with a very sweet smell. A very prolific producer of off shoots.
