I take no credit for homogeneity! Just a bit of common sense…and mentors.

…Poppenspaler’s Verveine, Coccolina’s grand-mother. An intelligent                                      addition to diversity for only those who know how.

Coccolina, cherished by all who know her, and through her progeny


Coccolina’s smile and good humour…comes from careful breeding before me to stay in the historical strain, meaning all I had to do for her was to stay away from certain lines and use some common sense. That’s not always easy when you think how some have had to rework their entire strategy to get to that point after sooo many years of breeding.
