    Picking up again where we left off, we picked up some new phalies for decorations around the house (we hosted the SoCal Koi Club meeting in Sep).

    Have also included a bloom on a Kahili Ginger we picked up in a raffle (from Gordon Chibana) at the club's July meeting. Looks just like a big pineapple!
