  IAS Show/continuing saga of Croat and Boyce

Hello All,

A typical Florida tropical depression didn't phase the aroid crew. Despite
previously posted perils, Tom Croat and Peter Boyce showed up in Miami. As
usual, Tom, and now Peter good-naturedly identified plants for everyone as we
were setting up and on through the sale. My friend Murline Lydon and I have
been making this pilgrimage for 5 or 6 years and each time, it is pure
pleasure!! The exhibition plants were beautifully grown specimen plants not
normally seen outside large botanical gardens. Among the plants for sale
were countless species and hybrids that one never sees for sale. The sale
was a feeding frenzy!!

Saturday, after lunch, Dewey Fisk held an open house at his place. His
collection is quite amazing in quantity and quality. There was so much that
we'd not seen before--many rare genera and species, also hybrids made by John
Banta. There was so much that it was impossible for us to take it all in.
Very beautiful!! I hope some of you will one day have a chance to see his
collection.
