That was great, thanks for the turn on Susan! Somebody out there has a
great sense of humor. Where ever did you find it?

Susan,

I LOVED this site! Thank you so much for posting it. For those who know
who wrote it, if it's not a secret, I'd love to congratulate the authors.

My only problem with the site is that I want to tell everyone about it,
but nobody but a plant catalog obsessive like me can appreciate the jokes.
Even a simple one like "Acer grisham, the paperback maple" requires that
you know the latin AND common names of plants AND recognize the catalog
format of Glasshouse Works; ie the aroid listers will understand it , but
my friends and family just go, "So?"

Oh, wait, I do know a couple of landscape architects I can tell about
it...

ArcaMax.com has a New Website email list. I found it there.

Somebody has a dirty sense of humor. I didn't like it.

I concur, an amazing site, LOTS of fantastic humor, 'double meanings'
abound, and I LOVE it. Puritans and folk that live in the 'bible belt' may
want it burned, tough luck!

Susan, John, et al:

The Shady Deals website was written primarily by one of my college
classmates Larry Hatch, who now operates the New Ornamentals Online
Database from his office in Raleigh.

Dear Tony,

Thanks for this information, I too THINK that I 'see' the 'others' that made
contributions to this MOST amusing (seemingly to most of us) site!
Please pass on my congrats. to the 'main author', and thanks to him/them for
a much-needed laugh at this season!
The best to you and all your staff for the Holidays!

Sincerely,

Julius
