February 2023 Dunsmore Park Meeting
The meeting is coming up and…sadly due to prior commitments, our usual host is not able to have us over. So, it’s back to the park for us, unless someone wants to volunteer their digs for a meeting.
DJ’s Meeting Details
As usual, I encourage everyone to bring plants to show off, or sell, and if someone has a presentation they want to make, let’s set it up. If not, I’ll bring my laptop and I’ll have a presentation on the Cephalotus of Coal Mine Beach, and the carnivorous plants of King’s Park, Perth. It may be a little difficult if we’re all crowding to look at the small screen on my laptop, so maybe we can do it as a zoom type meeting assuming someone has a way to do something like that. That way everyone can see the photos on their tiny little phone screens as I go through them. Or, I suppose you can bring your own laptops! Hope to see a lot of friendly faces and cool plants! Possibly we can meet at the park first for Show and Sell, and then repair to a local eatery for some nosh and the presentation. It used to be tradition to get some good eats after an LACPS meeting, we should resurrect that tradition.
