I'd like to comment on Rachel's announcement of the IBSA Symposium. 
My husband and I went to the last two Symposiums held in the same 
venue. The speakers both times were quite good, the plant displays 
enticing, and the company first rate. The field trips may be the best 
part however. They try to find places where there will be flowers in 
bloom and sometimes this is on private land you would not otherwise 
be able to visit. Last time there was an opportunity to extend the 
trip to go to Middelpos with a smaller group and that was wonderful. 
It doesn't sound like this add on is planned for this Symposium, but 
for those people who have never been to South Africa and want to go 
other places after the Symposium IBSA members could give you good 
idea about where to go. A lot depends on the amount of rain each area 
has received and that varies every year.
