>Date: Fri, 08 Oct 2004 08:55:40 +1000
Thanks for sharing this news with us! A happy event indeed. Perhaps Dr. Hay (if he reads thsi) may be so kind as to try to determine from wence this plant came, if by chance from a Jim Symon seed collection? I`m sorry that you missed seeing this amazing bloom. Any details as to how tall the bloom was, etc.??
