I concur, an amazing site, LOTS of fantastic humor, 'double meanings'
abound, and I LOVE it.   Puritans and folk that live in the 'bible belt' may
want it burned, tough luck!


I LOVED this site! Thank  you so much for posting it. For those who know
who wrote it, if it's not a secret, I'd love to congratulate the authors.

My only problem with the site is that I want to tell everyone about it,
but nobody but a plant catalog obsessive like me can appreciate the jokes.
Even a simple one like "Acer grisham, the paperback maple" requires that
you know the latin AND common names of plants AND recognize the catalog
format of Glasshouse Works; ie the aroid listers will understand it , but
my friends and family just go, "So?"

Oh, wait, I do know a couple of landscape architects I can tell about
