It is to early to know about December; sometimes we decide today to fly tomorrow.
And greenhorns are used to drink water, therefore it`s robcars beer. But thanks at all.

I did not considered the Sapindaceae family, so I would never guess the plant. Congratulations Greenhorn - how did you learn all these plants without yourself being into botany?? Amazing!


SAPINDACEAE (SoapBerry)

The small flowers are unisexual or functionally unisexual. In this case, the female flowers have non-functional stamens. The flowers are aggregated in cymes (rarely solitary), usually bracteate; often with female flowers at the base of the cyme and male at the apex. There are five sepals (sometimes four), separate or joined. The petals number five (sometimes four, or apetalous), usually free but sometimes fused at the base. The stamens usually number eight, arranged in two rings of four stamens, but the number can be from four to ten or more. The filaments are often hairy.

DO you have GPS Coords?
