Was amazing to meet a lot of you and great times we all had !!. the pic Lisa showed, of the top of our house is soon to have windows added in to the holes around that  triangular fibre glass roof to form our roof top conservatory, yep some broms will be inside I just have to negotiate how many.
Japie and Lisa , Im also not convinced on the variegate but we may never know, both Gerry and Avon before him made a large number that were not named , we have a couple via Gerry that have formula name using 'Star Gazer' as one of the parents to muddy the water further !, one of these is similar looking to above but sadly the mother is past its best so no pic at the moment.

Lisa, I believe the "Avon Ryan" plant in question you may have photographed at the Flanagan's place on the Sunday tour ? If so, it is the same as one Margaret has given me a pup of. It's apparently known as 'Avon 195' but it was never registered, Avon gave it to Margaret some years ago before he passed on.

It has quite a large striated rosette, with a spotty pink flush on the underside and supposedly goes quite white at flowering time. Highly likely another selected one from the 'Tickled Pink' or 'Pink Coral/Pink Porcelain' grexes maybe ? Margaret had 3 of them planted together, tucked under some date palms on her driveway loop that were very whitish looking and really caught the eye. You may have seen them too ?...I didn't get a pic unfortunately, as was raining at the time, but will do some more close-up pics of mine if I remember.

Certainly is one I have in mind for breeding with next season, as looks to be a likely transmitter  Grin

You're right, Graeme.  I had photographed the tag to ID the photo, then deleted it.  I managed to fish it out of the recycle bin, and it looks like I may have misinterpreted the inscription.

This was in her greenhouse area.  I didn't see the 3 by the driveway.  Good luck breeding with it!   Wink
