Thanks Anthony and Peter - great pictures of plenty of amazing plants !!  Another stunning show !
Many congrats to everyone involved!

I don't have the privilege of knowing Mr Cyril (green fingers) Lafong - but has he ever been submitted to an anti doping test ??  ::)  ;)

 Terribly difficult to catch a Squirrel for dope-testing, Luc..... they dash up a tree, or if indoors, up the curtains or on to a chandelier ..... really too much trouble, in the end..... ::) ;)

Hi Peter many thanks indeed for the super pictures and as for my leaning Iris I nearly dropped the potful on the way in so the fact it made it was lucky so much so if the weather stays like this very strong cold Siberian winds hailstones snow the lot I might even bring the plant to Hexam?, cheers Ian.

Super pics of the Show, Antony and Peter. 
Peter, I like your pic of my Iris.  It only had 2 flowers on Saturday but has 4 today with at least 3 buds to come. I am waiting to see how many will open before the first one fades.

Roma,
I was lucky with that one because I was just packing away the camera near the end of the show to go and get a cup of tea when I turned round and saw it backlit against the dark background. It would have been a crime not to take the photo.

Great report.  Bet it was a fab day.  And now you will be set for Edinburgh, can't make it but I know I shall be sorry.

Very interesting. I was child minding that day, so only managed two short spells at the show. :-X
