A year ago I was as well, now I have far more than I dreamed possible in
such a short time <BIG grin>.  They really grow on you!!

I am an iris lover myself, plus numerous other bits and pieces as you'll
see in my signature at the bottom of my emails.  I collect far too much and
far too broadly.  I am actually trying to remember whether I have ever
introduced myself to this list properly.  Does anyone remember?  I have a
vague feeling I never have.  I think I lurked for a little while at the
beginning, then launched in with questions.

There are people on this list from all over the world, all collecting the
same things.  There is a great amount of knowledge here, you just have to
ask the right questions.

Again, welcome to the AEG.
