I found this on the ground this morning under the orange tree. It looks as if has grown a nose, I thought it might make you laugh as much as it did Mom and I...

Aloha Dave,

When I tried to look "Citrus durante" up I got info in Spanish, so I am not sure what it it a Citrus leaf miner causing the "nose" on my orange? That's the closest I could come to understanding!

Oh! I finally got it! LOL! I really am as thick as two planks of wood!


Aloha Alistair - how is everything "down under"? Are you still breeding Brugs? For everyone who doesn't know Alistair, he has the most wonderful gardens in Ozzie Land and has been the proud papa of some outstanding Brugmansia plants as well as being an expert in all plant life, just like our Dave Metro...I wonder how you are getting on with writing your book?

That's cool, Jen! LOL! Very good Dave!

Did you eat it?

It has been so warm here. It's unreal. My Jasmine is in bloom. I'll have to get a picture.

Aloha y'all!
