can't imagine fish talking with New Yawk accents - around here they all sound like Scarlett or Rhett!!

Variety show fish--how cool. We don't have those in Kansas.

I took your tour of the botanical gardens/rose gardens--loved it. Thank you.

The pictures and narrative are great! How do you remember all of the names of the flowers? If you aren't a professional photographer, you should be!!
Thanks!!!

I just love Koi. Before my Dad started showing roses he and I showed Koi. If you think dragging rose blooms around is hard, try it with a fish!

PS: I can actually hear those accents too. Scary.

I loved all the beautiful pictures. 'Fragrant Lace' and 'Leweson Gower' were particularly stunning. It did look like a perfect day--thank you for recording and sharing it.
