Goodbye for now,
‘Edgar Allan Pew’

It was a good run for our friend Edgar, but alas, all good things come to an end and he will no longer be on display. Thanks to everyone that came to visit. Edgar will eventually revert to the leaf stage to await his next flowering sometime in the next 7-10 years. Mark your calendars!
