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

The last show that I take my plants to is the Jacksdale Garden Center
Show. 2002 is the first year that it has been held, and I believe that we
should all support our local shows, and help keep them successful. There
were only two classes for fuchsias at this show, one for a fuchsia in any
size pot, and the other for a tryphilla fuchsia in any size pot. I didn't
show a tryphilla (I don't have much luck at growing them), but I entered
three standard fuchsias of Waveney Sunrise in the other class, and won
first place with one of them. It's the standard with the red card in the
pot in the middle of this first picture.
I personally thought that one of the other plants I took was the better
plant, it's the standard of Waveney Sunrise on the right side of this
second picture. I preferred it because it was just the right shape and
covered in an abundance of flowers and leaves. But the judge of course
knows much better than I, and we must abide by his decision. That is one
of the things I enjoy about showing, the differences of opinion that you
find among growers and judges. One will have a preference for one plant,
and the other prefer another totally different one. It wouldn't do for us
all to be alike. Would it?
I'll continue with the tutorial on growing standard fuchsias next
month. Been too much happening over August and September for me to have
time to work on it.
