A stunning letter in vcrisis.com

March 27, 2004

vcrisis has a letter from the person pleading for help to clarify the cirscumstances of his father’s death during during the protests on March 1st. After reading it, all I can do is post it for everyone to read, sad and stunned with what is happening in my country. Meanwhile, the Minister of Justice is still playing dumb about what happened, repeating day after day, that there are no formal accusations of deaths and torture.

Lots of flowering right now. The top row shows a fairly dark variety of Cattleya Skinneri from central Amrica. The plant on the left is huge, I bought it as a 2 inch seedling. Most years it has flowered a lot but not at once like this year. It still has two bucnhes of buttons that have not opened. On the right you can see the flowers up close, they are really delicate and nice with a little fragrance.


The bottom row shows on the left Encyclia Cordigera. This is not the Venezuelan variety, this is the darker Central American form. Very, very fragant. On the right there is a shot of tiny flowers of Aerangis Citrata. These are small slightly above a quarter of an inch with a long spur coming out of the flower. These are African, found in many countries, including Madagascar.
