I'm glad to hear from you. I've been doing frogs for over 20 years

Atlanta Botanical Gardens next year. I always wanted to go down their
to see Ron Gagliardos frogs and plants. Ron Gagliardo and Charles
Powell are putting that show on. They are both orchid and frog guys.
I'll let you know how the plants do. I'll probably continue posting
some things to both lists (unless I get complaints). The lists do
overlap quite a bit. Many of the orchids and frogs need nearly the
