Hi Pat -- welcome to the list -- don't know if you remember Ray & me
(we're the crazy ones in your club who live in KC and drive the 150
miles one way to attend as many meetings and events as we can).  At any
rate, wanted to say welcome -- in addition to being a source of good
information and a forum for getting input on questions, it's also a lot
of fun.  

We just got back from the regional in Joplin -- great weather and the
gardens were just a hair past peak, so the bloom was good. In addition
to Ray and I, the only other member from the Ozark society was Calvin
Helsley.  We plan to be in Springfield August 1 for the plant sale, so
maybe will see you then.  

We've got peak bloom here in the KC area now. This upcoming weekend we
have two shows -- KC and St Joseph -- probably won't have much left in
the way of TBs to take, but should have a good selection of siberians
and species.
