    Hi Randy,

    I am definitely interested in coming to visit. I was hoping to come either last weekend or this coming weekend, but I have been dealing with exams and grades. If I have all of the grades done I will definitely come down ASAP. Can you hold specific plants for me? You have some on my wish list that I would be really thrilled to get. I can even pay ahead of time with paypal if you want.

    Thanks,
    Karl

    Hi Karl, Sure, let me know which ones you want. The Exotica & Tali are already promised out. I work from home, so almost any day is good for me. My fiancé is a teacher & is done Monday also. I have a lot more rare stuff not listed that I could be talked out of & my neighbor Ricky has some also.

    Thanks, Randy 954 292-3095

    Will give you a call soon. One more batch of exams to grade. I figured the Exotica would be gone before I even asked so did not ever expect to get that one. Not surprised Tali is gone. Bob Sabourne Hybrid, Jester, Prince of Orange, Shoshanna, Colombia, and the Blotched William Jennings Bryan are all definites if they are still available. I am sure there will be others. My home phone is 772-492-9129. I have been staying at school grading until about 7 and need to grab something to eat. Meetings next Monday and Tuesday and done until my summer classes after that, but will probably be finishing grades and comments this weekend. Looking forward to coming down.

    I can't believe I'm going to give a slew of rare crotons to my neighbors. These took me almost 10 years to acquire if anyone's still interested!

    Do you still have much left? I was going down to Wellington again to do shopping so if you think I may have missed some plants last time I could stop by when I was in your area. I have a feeling there may have been a few we talked about and I forgot to take but not sure if they would still be there. I have all the others planted. Thanks Karl

    We will be down there tomorrow so don't know if you will be busy doing the moving (we will be stopping by Mounts Botanical Garden, and getting groceries at Trader Joe's and Whole Food before we have lunch). Can stop by after lunch to check in if you are going to be around.

    Little Chief
    Jester

    Captain Kidd
    Faye Miller
    Limelight
    Victor Limoine

    The others that I don't have I am sure were gone when I visited last time.

    Talk to you soon.

    Still a great assortment, I was surprised how many more I found. I am so excited with the crotons I got yesterday, knocked some more off my wishlist that I will now have in my gardens. Thanks again Randy!
