in expectation of the weekend in Pennsylvania

I arrived two days ago. Yesterday I spent all day to take a close look at the new trees and price them with Jim Doyle. I must say that I am quite exited about the quality and variety. There are more than 200 new trees. 95 % of them are in an affordable price range from US$ 45 to 1,000 range. I have the feeling that the quality is even better than last year. Everybody can find his collected American tree for a reasonable price. There is a special sale going on over the weekend . I hope to meet many of you soon.
