Lots of highly desirable plants. Note to contributors: if you wish to get rid of these plants to make more space in your greenhouses, I can offer assistance.
Also lots of attractive photos. I especially liked (to pick just 3) Chris L's M. swinglei, Dave W's M. sanchez-mejoradae and Sylvia's M. blossfeldiana. But the winner is Rod's M. saboae v. haudeana; I was impressed by the sharp focus on both the flower and the plant body. A lovely photo of a lovely plant.
Over to you, Rod.

Thanks Mike. Sadly the M. saboae has died so I only have the photo to remember it by. I'll post a subject for May later today.
