    We bought out plane tickets already, we'll be flying out from Dallas for show. Now we just need to find a free place to stay (probably my at my brother's place in Boston). Unfortunately, bringing plants will be too difficult...so my big tub of aldrovanda won't be there

    See you all in a few weeks!

    We are having an NECPS meeting Saturday, 12:30 at the Botanical Center in Roger Williams Park, Providence, Rhode Island.

    The focus will be on planning the show, but there will also be a CP display table and silent auction. Posters should be available too.

    Also, THE BOOKS HAVE ARRIVED just in time for the show:

    Glistening Carnivores - The Sticky-Leaved Insect-Eating Plants -
    Hardback - McPherson
    The seven genera of sticky-leaved insect-eating plants are uniquely
    beautiful and captivate the interest of all who behold them. Each
    produces shimmering leaves lined with glistening droplets of glue that
    attract, trap and kill insects and other small animals. Complimented
    by 279 spectacular images, this work examines all seven genera of
    sticky-leaved insect-eating plants (Byblis, Drosera, Drosophyllum,
    Ibicella, Pinguicula, Roridula and Triphyophyllum) and documents their
    wild ecology and natural diversity in full detail and in many cases,
    for the very first time.

    Lost Worlds of the Guiana Highlands - Hardback - McPherson
    The tablelands of the Guiana Highlands are among the most spectacular
    yet least explored mountains of our world. Each is an immense
    sandstone plateau known locally as a `tepui' that is encircled on all
    sides by gigantic vertical cliffs up to 1,000 metres tall. The summits
    of these unique mountains have remained isolated for millions of
    years, and today harbour plants, animals and landscapes that occur
    nowhere else on Earth. This work examines the story of the discovery
    and exploration of these remarkable mountains and considers the unique
    plants, animals and landscapes atop of these mysterious lost worlds.

    Hope to see some of you at the planning meeting!

    Ditto. I'm stoked. It will be nice to put some faces to the names around here, lol. The only other CPer I've ever met was Lois when I was in California a year ago May. Look out!

    Hope you all have a wonderful time and safe trips!

    I hope to be able to go to a CP meeting one of these days but it will have to be a tad bit closer to me than RI.
    They are slowly and painfully killing you.....did you know that?

    How brainwashed are you?
