Re: gotta buy

Guess its a case of wanting what isn't easy to get as you live in the 
land of Ghio, Schreiner, Keppel, etc.

I buy a lot (& visit if I can) a lot from both Barry Blyth and buy 
from Graham Grosvenor as well, but....  

Barry's new lines with About Town are simply fantastic.  Dont know if 
Coffee Whispers, Lily My Love, etc. are over there yet, but in real 
life, these are really something.  

When we were at Barry's two years ago he had a seedling that was 
grey, not released yet but absolutely different and stunning.

Guess I was after all those we don't see here.  We do get a lot of 
Ghio's, Schreiner's, Keppels, etc. and we also have to pay if we 
import (megabucks).  Was looking for others like I mentioned.

Thanks for responding
