Re: Intro- Mariana

Welcome, Mariana.  Do you know my good friend and fellow garden club member 
Bill Smiles?  He is an orchid specialist in Chappaqua who has a fabulous 
collection, especially of Draculas. If you don't know him, you should.  He 
has told me he would be glad to hear from and answer questions from this 
group.  You can contact him at orchid142@earthlink.net.  Tell him I sent you.
