Bellingham was and still is a wonderful retirement town. Dr. Carl Withner, former curator of the orchid collection at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, also lived here. We became friends and use to have many talks about orchids and lilies. I was into Bedding Plants for sale in the spring. Now many years later I wish I would have been into lilies. You have so many nice plants. Good for you. I can tell you love it too.
