    Sorry, pineapple. I was pretty buried working on these posts. I wasn't watching the chat box.

    I was at the South Bay CP event, but didn't stay long, due to a negative budget. I stayed long enough to say "Hi!" to friends, then left.

    Mooooore pictures!



    Was George, then we found out he's most likely a she, so now it's Georgia.










    Sarracenia 'Popeii'




    Thin ice, guys....






    Here's one I got ages ago from fleabay. He's trying to get it named. Here it is, finally looking like it should.




    The bromeliad got upgraded to a bigger pot. And it made a mini-me!






    Orchids! My favorite on top, O. 'Sharry Baby' "Ruby Doll", smells just like a regular Sharry Baby, chocolate and vanilla, plus a hint of raspberry. The others are NOIDs.














    Phycopsis mendenhall, we presume?






    One FABulous pot for a couple nice cobras. Mountain form. We spent three hours puttering about the Morgan Hill area foothills, looking for a road cut through some pure serpentine. Oh, did we ever find some! I brought home a couple gallons of leavings from a recent rockslide, dumped in the middle of an already narrow turnout. I thin rinsed, graded , then triple rinsed the rock, and got four groups: 7-1.5", 1.5-1/4", 1/4-1/8", 1/8"-sand. I then added some of each, in measured amounts, to some Cobra-friendly soil mix, including pumice, orchid bark and LFS. The sand component was serpentine, thanks to my handy sifter (colander).
















    Went RC soaring yesterday.

    Darned....



    ....downwind....



    ....leg.



    Still, between the inventive landing and a broken wing spar that happened two weeks ago (and was too lazy to fix), I still got this: (ignore the "Expert", there is no such class, it's an old card. The class is now called 2m woodie fledgeling, AKA total Rookies.)





    Here's a project I'm nearly done working on. I need to fill in the covering just a bit more.... BTW, this is the stuff I've been talking about. Nitrate dope. Yes, this is what eventually coined the nickname "dope" for dummies, illicit pharmaceuticals, and airheads. Wikipedia describes aircraft dope and SIG Nitrate dope I am smarter, and use one of these: 3M respirator That smell gets into your hair, your clothes, your fingers are shiny and scratchy for a week.... But it's worth the effort, don't'chya think?

    Who, the NOID hybrid? I intend to. I was thinking of doing a short line of Sarr hybrids, like the Bug group, but with another theme. Shhhh.... I'm not saying what the group theme will be, just yet, but it should be fun. I already passed out my first division of the first plant to be named.



    Thanks, Thez!

    No problem. Just don't let it touch water, and never feed it after midnight.


    Just sayin'.
