First of all I would like to thank all of you who have visited the site over the years and sent me many e-mails of praise and encouragement for my work. For those who have e-mailed me for plant identification and advice, I hope my replies have been helpful. It is always very satisfying to help someone else to appreciate the joy of cultivating these plants and assist them with their hobby.

         Any and all donations will be appreciated. Any donation of $20 or more will receive a copy of my new CD Rom "Cacti and Succulents, Marvels of the Desert". Click "HERE" for details. Please make donations in US dollars or with a check or money order drawn on a US bank and send to:

Please include a note with your e-mail address so I may send a note of thanks. Thank you and God bless you.
