Sweet photos bud!  Thanks for sharing!  I love that feeling of "kid in a candystore"  I get when I go to a nursery that has unusual palms!  This photoalbum gave me just that feeling!

Sorry I missed you guys, next time tell one of the sales people to call me on the two way.

If anyone is planning a trip to RSN, I work Saturday from 9AM to 2PM. I will not be in now until the end of May since I am about to leave to Madagascar, but come see me when I get back.
