In Virginia Bickel?s second book, she turns from
historical fiction to mystery. Come September is the
story of Daniel Lindsey?s quest to identify the young
woman found unconscious in front of his store, and to
find out what she was doing on Mesa Street, in El
Paso, Texas. She brings to this genre her skill with
character development and dialogue. You won't be

It was a grey and gloomy Sunday morning on
March 10th when I took these photos. I'm hoping that all photos I take
from now on will be of a better quality. I purchased a tripod and from now
on all pictures will be taken using it.The first photo is of the standards
in the smaller, warmer of the two greenhouses and is taken looking up into
the heads of the Waveney Sunrise standards. It can be clearly seen that
they are doing well and producing lots of fresh green growth. The average
age of these plants would be between 7 and 10 years.
This second photo is of some cuttings of
Jenny Sorensen and Sneezy. I purchased two plants of each variety last
summer and instead of growing them on, I cut them back and used all the
cut back material to make cuttings. I've kept them growing slowly over the
winter and moved them into larger pots when needed. At present they look
like making some good plants and I have high hopes of them doing well in
the shows this year. I like the look of Jenny Sorensen, which is a
self-branching variety and should make a nice bush fuchsia.
The third photo is of the standards in the
larger, cooler of the two greenhouses. These are plants that were only
started into growth about 18 months ago. They made good strong plants last
year and I'm hopeful of them doing well in this years shows. Among them
are plants of Phyllis, Herald, Snowcap, Pink Marshmallow, Snowcap, Gordon
Thorley and Devonshire Dumpling. They are all looking good, except for the
Phyllis ones, which have lost most of their leaves due to being
overwatered. I hope that these will recover when the weather warms.
