A Mothers Day Gift from Faye apart from the Chockies and beautiful Card was






Its a 2 disc Computer programe that you load onto your computer and use as an ID for tropical trees ,shrubs ans vines all across the top of Aust .
I started ion the trees and have only got as far as the d's .
YOU CAN USE IT IN alphabeticlal list of botanical names or common names .
IT brings up on request
Distribution map of plant
Flower, leaf and other info
Photo of most plants sometimes up to 4 pics
So much info its just amazing
It will keep me out of mischief for many moons
And as more info becomes available I can get all the updates free.
Of course it will have a specialised audience .not much good if you live down south.

What a wonderful present Gwen yes it will keep you busy, this is great for us girls here too as you will be able to help us with those hard ID's when we get stuck whistle

And a update as well that's even better gee 2154 species that a huge amount and all the ways to find what they are is amazing.

Have you come across the name of that pretty flowered one from a while back that you have growing.

Nothing to do with plants, my Daughter gave me a large double layer box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts and a double pack of Marshmallow socks, no we have not touched the chocolates yet because we are still eating the single layer box I gave Tony for Mothers Day now there is one Guy that deserves a Mothers Days Gift

banana banana Yes MA Have not come across the 2 trees I need ID.s as I am only on the Ds .
I am a very methodical person and always have to start at the beginning and work through
till I reach the end.
Your chocolate macadanmia [ is that spelling right] sound yummy , you must be like Faye and I when we get chocolate we have one with coffee at night , sometimes we forget,
chocolates last a long time here.

Marvelous Idea Gail they do listen in their own way..

I was talking to Tony last night about places and I said to him there is only four places I would love to see in this life and he said I know, I said do you.. Yes he said Canada when its snow season sitting in the train with the clear roof, New Zealand, Taronga Zoo and Western Plains Zoo Dubbo.. I was amazed as I never thought he listened especially with his selective hearing Laughing Laughing

And you have six sets of ears to hear your hints so start dropping them.. Very Happy
