So far I can see I never introduced myself here. So here I am with one of my creations, Hoya cv 'Mathilde', a cross between H. carnosa & H. serpens. :oops:

Had great fun trying to transport it home in the car without decapitating it!

Although my pic is on my avatar, I decided to update you as that one was taken in 1984 at Glastonbury :lol: this one is at Newby Hall, near Ripon,last autumn. Not unfortunately my husband's family seat, merely named for the nearest village! As you can see, I've downgraded from wine in plastic cups to a 99!

Heather, you look much more refined now. :cool: But someone is looking longingly at your ice cream...

Here's 2 pictures of me.

This one was taken last year on Cape Point, out looking for Aloe succotrina

And this one, also last year, in Semonkong (Lesotho) on our way to Maletsunyane Falls (the highest single drop waterfall in Southern Africa). I'm a bit far away from the lens here, but I really like the picture :grin:

Hi guys!


My name is Sachi, I'm 23 and have been collecting cacs and succs for around 3 years now, only getting 'serious' ;) in the last year or so. Already got myself over 150 individual plants, so not doing too badly!

attached is a photo of my bedroom now that all the plants are in for the winter (Running out of room eeeek!) and me chilling by the pond : )
