    Here's the October Surprise that I happily got at the last auction. It is finally pushing some new growth. 20160206_131048_HDR.jpg 20160206_131102_HDR.jpg 20160206_131117_HDR.jpg

    So, I've been told that Tali is a Stan Wood seedling, and I've also been told that Johnny Shelton is responsible for October Surprise. Just thought I would add to the confusion.
