Welcome to my Sunroom
Hi Everyone! Come on in and relax!
Fall is definitely in the air here in Chicagoland. I had to put the furnaces on on Saturday! Let’s jump right in to Tips and Treasures!
Tips and Treasures
More treasure for you today, mixed with sadness. I’m sure that most of you know that Bill Foster passed away on 24 September 2019. He was 85 years old. Bill was very well known in the AVSA, and had been the Chair of the Shows & Judges Committee for decades. His passing really is the end of an era.
Back in 2013, at the National African Violet Convention in Austin, Texas, Bill sat down with me for an interview. I thought you might like to see this footage again and remember him fondly.
A Look at What’s On the Stands
Not much has changed around here, although plenty of stuff is in bloom at the moment. I’ve had out of town company off and on since Labor Day! That takes a lot of time . . .
Get the Bail Money Ready!
