Re: Amaryllis??

 Dear all:  Thanks for all the info. on the Amaryllis and the tillandsias...I'm pretty sure I'm going to be expanding my indoor garden this winter to include these...somehow, over the fall as I moved plants around, I managed to accumulate more houseplants than I've had in some years...I found a really great web site that showed how to make living wreaths using the tillandsias that I am definitely going to try, probably during my long winter vacation which begins in another week...Again, thanks for all the info.  Also, have a new long-term project that I'm about to start for our church...we have a huge expanse of lawn that stretches between the Church and the Rectory and somehow, today, it just popped into my head that this space would be perfectly suited to a living rosary walk...when I mentioned it at church tonight, everyone was very enthusiastically supportive, so it looks as if I'm going to spend the winter putting together a plan for this.  Any ideas from this incredible group of folks we have here would be more than welcome.  Thanks again.

Melody, IA (Z 5/4)
