Sorry guys, I’m not going to make it. I can visit Selby for free in a few weeks so I’ll just wait until then... Plus, @Chatta will probably give us all the coronavirus. :bummed:

Will miss you @RedRabbit!

For those planning on attending, you may want to bring a jacket.  There should be plenty of sun, but the morning and evening temperatures might feel a little chilly with winds coming out of the NNE at 17mph.

@Palmaceae It will be good to see you again when you do.  The Summer meeting is scheduled for Leu Gardens in Orlando, FL in June.  We're hoping to have presentations on fertilizer and lethal bronzing after a garden tour in the morning (before it hits 95 degrees).

I did forget to mention how nice it was to have @cycadjungle at the gardens with so many different cycads around and coning.

For those who were hunting for Foxy Lady palms, there was one in the auction... you missed it ;)

For those awaiting photos, here is a link to some photos from Marie Selby Botanical Gardens:

      SUMMER MEETING At our last meeting, it was announced that we would meet at Leu Gardens on or around June 13, 2020.  Unfortunately, due to health and safety concerns and Orlando cancelling all indoor meetings through June, we will not be holding an official meeting.  A group of members who have reciprocal memberships to Leu Gardens will go that morning to walk the gardens while respecting the social distancing guidelines.  Others are welcome to do the same should they deem it safe to do so.   QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER The Palmateer will still be published and those who wish to submit an article, photograph or other content are encouraged to email their content to palmateer@cfpacs.com by June 15th.  If you write an article with pictures, it is requested to also attach the original images as the images embedded in document files do not always resize properly.  For those looking for back issues to read during quarantine, they are posted here: http://cfpacs.com/org/palmateer/   While you are at the site, you should notice that it has a new look that is much improved.   SEED BANK The seed bank portion of the site is scheduled for a long overdue update to reflect our current inventory.  Those with seeds to donate should contact our seed bank coordinator at: Theseedbank@yahoo.com   LOOKING FORWARD The plan for the year was to have the Fall Meeting at Montgomery Botanical Gardens and the Holiday meeting somewhere on the east coast.  With the current situation being what it is, it's really a guess as to whether those plans will be altered, amended or cancelled as we move forward through tenuous times.  Notification will be through email if you are on our mailing list and will be posted on PalmTalk.   Stay safe everyone!
