Re: Ground Orchid


Jim, I looked it up and the images I saw of the leaves alone were enough to
create a desire for the plants.  The flowers are beautiful.  I just love
those little surprises, most of them in spring, when a long-awaited plant
blooms.  I am eager to see my first Epimedium flowers this spring.  And I
hope I don't miss the Bloodroot.  It's such a grand surprise when you round
the corner and notice that new leaf, or the long-awaited flower spike.

Even though I can't grow much of anything you do, I enjoy it when you
mention these items.  It spurs me on to take a look at something I might
never have thought to look up.  Thanks!

Kitty
