Fermi, very beautiful show! Thanks for showing. It is nice to see some spring flowers. It's almost autumn here. At the moment there is in Belgium a heat wave of around 30C, something we have never had before in September.

Are the flowers in the top left of your first photo a kind of heather?

Fermi
It may surprise some to see orchids in a rock garden section, but many AU native orchids do in fact grow on rocks.

Hi Diane,
I'm not sure which photo you're referring to. I don't think there was any heather at the FCHS Show.
Can you tell me which one you mean?

Fermi,

Beautiful show very extensive.  I'm not aware of any flower shows in the Portland/Salem area.

When we lived in San Francisco, there were flower shows at the Hall of Flowers in Golden Gate Park several times a year.

I really miss that!

Hi Diane,
you have sharp eyes!
I think it's the South African Erica cerinthoides.
It looks like it was in a mixed bunch of flowers,

Some anemones in the garden - we originally planted 3 types A. coronaria, A. pavonina and A. heldreichii in tis bed. There are now hybrids between them - the fourth pic is of what appears to be a cross between A. heldreichii and a red form of Anemone pavonina,
