The Bromeliad Society of Australia‘s members and their guest are heading to the Blue Mountains on the 11th November so there isn’t a meeting due until Saturday, 9th December.
A bus trip has been organised by Carolyn Bunnell and the executive committee. First stop, will be Wildwood gardens at Bilpin then onto the beautiful botanical gardens in Mount Tomah.
A must see plant, currently flowering in the gardens is the blue puya which is a spectacular South American beauty that stands two metres tall with deep turquoise flowers and is part of the Bromeliaceae (Bromeliad) family.
Following lunch a visit to the Hillbilly Cider Shed, Bilpin is planned, providing an opportunity to taste the locally made varieties of apple cider.
