Thanks Margaret.  I have several flowers that she used to grow that she
with me over the years.  I don't know the names of the varieties of flowers,
but I
have the flowers  :-)
The one thing I wish I knew what variety she grew is collards.  She called
cabbage collards, as they were lighter green than most and were sweeter and
more tender than most collards.  The seeds were not available around here,
she saved her own seed every year.  I don't know where she got the first
from---I think she said someone gave them to her.  Anyway, they are gone
and I don't know what it was.  They were the best collards that I've ever
eaten, though.

Soon I'm going to her house and get cuttings from her camillias.  They are
right now.  I want to try to propagate some of hers for myself.
