I sort of assumed your would assume I wanted to see flowering plants --
aroids, bulbs, etc. <VBG>   I'm interested in almost all bulbs, tender as
well as hardy.  Sorry to be so vague the first time.

At any rate that is what I am interested in seeing:  flowering bulbs
("geophytes") including but not exclusively aroids.  My travel time is
controlled by my nursery season here.  We can't get away from the daylili=es
in June and July, and I have to attend the IBS Bulb Symposium at Huntingt=on
Gardens (San Marino, California) the last weekend in this month.

I am trying to arrange a couple of visits to bulb growers, one in North
Holland and one around Lisse.  We'll also take in Keuckenhof, although I
suppose the tulips will be gone by then.  We will stay the first night in
Amsterdam, Hotel Beethoven, and maybe the rest of our nights too.  I'm no=t
sure how long it takes to drive to the various places.  We will rent a ca=r
in the Netherlands.

I am also getting a new camera this week:  a Mamiya 645E, larger format
than 35-mm.  It seems editors don't like 35-mm slides for illustrations
(now she tells me!)   I plan to use it there, along with my trusty old
Nikon.  So I hope to see lots of flowers in bloom.

-From the Netherlands, we'll go by train to Switzerland and do some more
garden visiting there for a week, then fly home from Zurich.
