Amongst a bigger entry of Amarine in vases there was Monday an impressive potgrown red cultivar:

Stunningly beautiful, Luit!

This week the same flowers were shown again and now there is more information about.
It is not an Amarine but is a hand made cross of Nerine bowdenii x Nerine sarniensis!

Luit - 'Mr. John' is an amazing colour for a hardy Nerine.  I wonder what the source of that colour was.

I'm trying to read the beige card to see if I can decipher the cross or whether it is a straight bowdenii but can't quite make it out.

If like me you are a regular reader of these pages I'm sure you will have noticed that so far in 2015 Luit's always entertaining and always educational reports, which started in their present format around 2008, have been missing. I know that Luit has not enjoyed the best of health in 2015 so far but we were in touch a couple of weeks ago and he tells me he was feeling a bit better and expects to make further progress that will only be helped by some warming sun on his back.

I don't know if Luit has decided to retire his pen yet and bearing in mind the weekly chore of translation he has coped with for many years (and a chore he says gets more and more difficult as the years progress) who could blame him. If you have Luit you are deserving of an awful lot of thanks from members here and in the same way, if you haven't, an even greater lot of thanks.

 Luit is one of the best friends of the Forum - as well as his reports in this topic, we have previously enjoyed- and have in these pages as an archive - his massive report on the "connoisseur collection" of Cees Breed. He has also, on two occasions, provided huge numbers of bulbs to be sold at the SRGC Discussion Weekend  to raise funds for the forum.
 
He has done this at times when he was also not in the best of health - Luit typifies the kind of supportive SRGC member who gives back to the club in whatever way he can - and the information and experience he has shared with us in these pages is a huge testament to his kindness.

Those of us who have had the privilege to meet Luit and his charming wife, Vroni will attest that he is one of the nicest folks you could hope to meet.   We wish you well, Luit, and we send every god wish to you for a speedy recovery - perhaps some Austrian air and pastries would help - I'm sure Vroni could arrange that!

IF Luit decides he wants to have some more time to himself to enjoy just watching the world go by then of course, we will miss his forum contributions very much - but  most of all we want to see him feeling well again!
We send you all our love and best wishes, dear Luit.  :-*

Ian had a lovely chat with Luit yesterday.   
Dear Luit is still feeling "under the weather" as we might say - but medical tests have cleared him of anything  life-threatening - it seems he is suffering some sort of post-viral illness- but he is making some progress and his doctors are  happy that he will gain strength.   At the moment Luit is very easily tired and  feeling a bit weak but he has read the good wishes expressed to him and is cheered by them.
As you might imagine, Vroni is taking good care of him and will make sure he takes all the rest he needs to make a full and proper recovery, when Luit will rejoin us here.

Thinking of you fondly, Luit!  :-*

Spring is nearer Luit, that will do it. All the best and look, after yourself.
