Hey Stephanie, look at this! I mastered the camera (this time) so that I can take close up photographs that are actually in focus. What a great leap forward. This is one of the bromeliads that Stephanie gave me. What a stunning flower spike it is. There are several more emerging as well to make this plant an absolute delight to admire. It has several pups coming off the side, so I'll pot them up after flowering to make some more plants. Lovely!
PS Yes, I am still maintaining the rage about blind umpires. Maybe the AFL has a gag order on players and coaches, but it can't enforce ones on fans.
