Great site!I was a good friend of leon,and spent alot of time at the isles,and am glad to see it went to someone who would care for the place.I spent many a day chopping cypress knees and also helped drill a well in the back.Leon was a great friend with alot of stories.I would stay out in a camper on my days off in miami,he gave me a great knowledge of orchids,and I did see him actually not sell to some people and just tell them to leave.He lived in a simple cabin,but had a great RV in the back,he loved the place.I will never forget the first time I took a shower in his shower shack,he hard a tokay gecko nest on the wall,the gecko was huge,he just told me"don't mess with the eggs,she'll leave you alone"smiled and walked away.Kinda like when he told me I could swim in the pond and the alligator would leave me alone,but it did.He told me stories of WWII,world travels,and being related to english royalty,he had some awesome orchids,and I still raise orchids to this day .,Thanks for your site,,,Wade

Your website is inspiring, fascinating, and delightful to my senses. I love growing bromeliads and orchids, and I love Old Florida. I live in Old Homosassa along the "nature coast". I see you live in a fabulous place too. Thank you for this wonderful website. I have passed the link on to friends and family. Maybe we will meet you one day.
