Hi everyone,

Well it’s overcast, very cold and looking like rain once again so not a very nice day after yesterday which was a "beaut".

My son and family are packing this morning as they fly out this afternoon to go back home to Bali. (I think they’ll appreciate the warm climate much more after having been here for nearly three weeks and really feeling the cold)

There’s not much to report on the brom. front this morning as I haven’t been down the yard among them in the last couple of days.

It looks like it’s just you and me today Shirley; I like the little Neo. haul you have posted; Neo. ‘Lila’ is the only one I have and it’s a beautiful Neo and certainly worth growing. Can you please post pic’s of the other three when they grow a bit and start to mature, as they display a bit of “promise” even at this early stage.

I don’t know where all of the others have got to. I know Colleen hurt her back and is probably still recovering but I’ve heard nothing of the other regulars like Sue, Tash, Jen and Wendy and Johnny, they all seem to have vanished into the ether once again. I hope their absence is due to being too busy and not because they are unwell, (maybe a “bromeliad monster” has got them!), anyway we miss you all so do drop in and let us know what’s happening.

I’ll just finish with a few more old pic’s once again; 1st is Neo ‘Apricot Nectar’, 2nd is Neo [Carcharodon x concentrica] x Self, 3rd is Neo ‘Broulee’, 4th is Neo ‘Garnish’ and 5th is Neo ‘Inferno’

All the best, Nev.
