Dear Julius,

Thank you for your very kind words.

If I may be permitted to answer on behalf of all us so fortunate as to be in
the position to have someone pay us to pursue our hobby AND be allowed to be
considered as professionals, and say that it is very much a two way process.
We gain enormously (and take great pleasure) from being included among the
ranks of the plant hobbyists; without the folks that grow, and grow so
expertly, many of the plants that we study we, as professionals, would be
very much the poorer in terms of knowledge and vitally, in terms of our
circle of friends.
