Comments: Thanks very much for the information. We have a patch of orange lilies that my Dad planted about 50 years ago. As time changes so must the area that the lilies now live in. I have had great concerns about moving them but the information that I received has allayed those fears. Thanks again for your info and guidance on these beautiful flowers.

Comments: I purchased and planted a honeysuckle labelled as Golden Flame, but I don\'t believe it is. It bloomed whitish inside and purplish outside. May be the serotina, but I am not sure. Does it fade to the yellow shown in your photoraphs? Is there a way to identify it for sure? If it's an invasive variety I will want to return it to the nursery.

Comment :   Hoi, waarom is deze site niet in het Nederlands?? Ik lees namelijk erg slecht Engels. Ik kon er wat info uithalen maar niet alles is even duidelijk?? Ik ken een Klapwijk hier in Rotterdam maar hij beweerd echt dat jouw crest absoluut verzonnen is.

Webmaster's comments:  Andy, als jij je email adres had ingevult dan had ik je direct terug kunnen schrijven natuurlijk:) Maar ja, het staat nog niet in het Nederlands om dat ik daar nog mee aan het werk ben. En je Klapwijkse vriend kan geen leed van de Genealogise Vereniging Klapwijk zijn want dan zou hij of zij het wapen geherkent hadden.

For the benefit of those visitors that cannot read Dutch, here's a quick and rough translation to get the gist of the exchange: Andy complained about the site not being in Dutch because his English was so bad, he could gather most of the details but some got lost in the translation for him. He also says he has a Klapwijk friend who claims that the crest you see on the index page of this site is the result of someone's overactive imagination. And that tells me that indeed things got lost in the translation for him. If you read the copy at the top of the index page, it says that the crest was commisioned by the Klapwijk Genealogical Society, it was never claimed to be a historic crest. The design is based on historic information, but there is no indication found sofar that indeed the family name was associated with any particular historical heraldic crest. I responded by telling him it was too bad he didn't leave his email address so I could contact him directly and that his Klapwijk friend could not be a member of the Klapwijk Genealogical Society because he or she would have immediately recognized the crest for what it is.
