Re: Auction


You are criticizing, but that is OK.  Some of us have ulterior motives here.
I got to thinking that by donating a few TC plants, with a little added
shipping cost, I have generated interest in some of our plants.  Inexpensive
advertising I would think.   It may even motivate some people to visit our
web site.  I noticed that pictures of two of our introductions were posted
to hostapix today  --  pictures I did not even have.  Frankly, I do not care
what they do with the money, but we do link to the Hosta Library for most of
our pictures, so I do owe them support.  My only reservation is that too
many plants may dilute the prices paid  for each  --  we will see.

So stop being a spoiled sport and join the enthusiasm!  Remember this is the
season of BA! Humbug!
