Hi All, I have great sadness in my heart as I tell you all that on Friday we
had a wildfire sweep through our district and I lost everything except the
house and shed. I lost 100,000+ palm and cycad plants, 30,000 chillie plants
, over 250 varieties that all of my good friends world wide had so kindly
sent me the seeds for. I will update with some photos of the devastation in
the next couple of days but I am in shock. I lost a hot house , shadehouse
and everything else on the property. The house was saved by a water bomber
dropping a load at the critical time.
