Joyce - nope, I was good and did not sneak anything home - I was upfront with the ginger blossoms, and there were no problems with that.
Bigred - did you ever cut some pussywillows to bring indoors? I don't have ready access to any where I Iive.
Week 4 - in zone 9a, we are able to keep the cymbidiums outdoor, with some frost protection. I have a few in the ground by the house, but most of mines are in pots so that I can put them on the porch, or move around as needed. This white/maroon one is the earliest to bloom - sometime as early as in December. Some of the later blooming ones don't bloom until March or April.
