Just booked Croatia on the internet Barbara....touring then a week in Slovenia at Lake Bled...have been to the lake before, many years ago so thought it would be nice again.
We go at the end of April into May...But first a little break to Cornwall in March...Looking forward to it..although I have developed a dislike to flying.....otherwise it would be NZ and Marg......thanks

Thanks for the colours and a reminder that there are other things to winter than just freezing our butts all the time.
Thanks Joan you are a darling.

It looks like you will have another great holiday, Joan..... can't you make a short stop in Holland? Then we can organize a FT-meeting...;-))

Right here Joan ... beautiful flower . I think it could be a South African Leucospernum .
They like it hot and dry :)

I just knew that I could rely on my KIWI friend....a wealth of botanical knowledge...thanks Margaret....looked it up and could find plenty of yellow ones.....are they a relative of the Protea..Barbara gave me the Idea.....
Jan 23 2011 14:45 GMT superJoan
Jo Margaret tells me it is a Leucospernum she knows all her NZ flowers and tropical ones too...thanks

Jan 23 2011 15:44 GMT superJoan
