Puzzle

Hi everyone,
As things have been a little quiet on the GW forum lately, I thought I would try a little puzzle in identification.

I will post an incomplete part of a brom picture to see if anyone can guess its identity.

If it's not identified the first time I will post progressive pic's showing more each time.

So here's the first, and PAUL YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO TAKE PART, AS I SPOKE TO YOU ABOUT THIS ON SATURDAY AND YOU KNOW ALREADY THE ANSWER.

All the best, Nev.

I got as far as Gonzer, but there's a gazillion of them that look something like that.
Maybe not a hybrid. Red Chestnut?

Hi Lisa and Gonz,
There's no doubt about it, is there anything about broms that you pair don't know. Here's the rest of what was supposed to be a puzzle.

Oh well, it was just a thought to initiate discussion,and if nothing else, at least it demonstrates to our newer members the knowledge that can be found on this forum...... back to the old drawing board.

All the best, Nev.

Hehehe..... try a harder one next time, Nev. If it had been a hybrid we could've been guessing for months!
