Isn't the catalog hysterical this time?  Tony Avent is a hoot.

It really distresses me that someone had a bad experience with Plant 
Delights.  I have been going there for many years and have also received 
plants through the mail from them.  I have always been pleased with their 
service.  Tony Avent has helped me locate trees and shrubs that they do not

Gennifer Flowers and Kathleen "Weeping" Willey."  Sorry about this.  I
think we've all O.D.-ed on this dreck, but it is timely.  Margaret
