    Peach,

    I saw those on PT and wondered why you didn't post them here. So to my great surprise........................ :)

    I have never seen that first one, but would really like to find one. Is it as pretty in person as your pic is showing. Very classy - just like you. :)

    Hullo Ron, ltns, my winter night temps here dont bother any cordylines at all. They are just about unkillable in my climate. The couple of times there has been a frost, only the exposed ones were burnt but they came back okay in a few weeks. Dean, it looks just as pretty in person as in the photo. I couldn't resist it.

    Peachy - could you post an Aussie slang thread with definitions here on Palmpedia ? :confused: Palmpedia is a bit more liberal than Palm Talk. :) I miss alot when the Aussies post on Palm Talk. :eek:

    Ron ;)

    You can not get them around here for that price. Just got 3 new ones for twice as much each.

    Ron I would be writing it for the next 12 months maybe more. However all is not lost !! I had a very enterprising american friend online who googled a dictionary for Strine (oz slang) and surprised me one day by coming out with a stream of terms that sat me on me khyber !! :p I suppose american cultural imperialism is taking the slang out of our language and I hear so many americanisms now in every day conversation. And that's fair dinkum !!
