Peter was a sweet person and a dear friend of my husband, Michael H Miller. We spent a wonderful weekend together, at their Reunion. Most of all, Peter was an Orchid Whisperer and we had lots of talks on how to get them to flower. I have lovely warm memories of Peter.
Ill always think of him when I speak to my little flowering Orchids.

Peter Spooner was a dear friend of Dr Michael H Miller. At the last Bates Reunion Michael and his wife Marcia, spent the entire weekend with Peter. It was a wonderful time. Marcia found out about his love of cultivating Orchids and fondly refers to Peter as "the Orchid Whisperer". He is remembered with great fondness and will be dearly missed.
