It was worth the wait Maggi !!
What a tremendous megapost !
Thanks a million for taking the time to show us all these gems - this really is the next best thing to being there !
I'm just wondering how some of these brittle plants got safely inside despite the gusting wind and rain !
Wonderful effort everyone !
Thanks

Hi Maggie great pictures and a brilliant day forgot to say thanks for a great day if only you could add the Aberdeen charm and banter to the pictures. Cheers

Thanks Maggi for your patience in resizing and labelling the pics. A veritable tour de force! :o A fabulous display of wonderful plants. The pot of Cypripedium calceolus is a worthy winner of the Quaich. Cyril's plant needs to be renamed C. parviflorum pubescens as it is no longer a subspecies of calceolus, but nonetheless it is an amazing plant. I certainly didn't have anything close this year.

Magnificent effort, Maggi and Ian.  I know just how long that will have taken to accomplish ... certainly worth all that time and trouble, many, many thanks.

Maggi, and everyone involved, thanks for the great shots of everything at the Aberdeen Show...what an effort, totally appreciated, to be revisited and mulled over at any time to savour the detail of the exhibits and 'meet' Members   :)

Thank you, Robin.
You know, we all have great fun at the shows ,to showcase the Club and the plants, and of course, for UK members they are very important to get together.
 We are acutely aware that overseas members miss out on these super events and the Forum gives us a great way to share them with you as best we can.
It seems we are succeeding in that and it gives us all a lot of pleasure!

Ian and I must again give our heartfelt thanks  to all those kind and happy members who gave so generously of their time, talent and muscle power to make the Aberdeen Show so attractive and such fun.
Of course there are super Gangs of members putting on all the other shows, to the delight and gratitude of Show Secretaries and Members alike.... but we believe we really do have the Best Team anywhere, we're convinced of that.  Some folks who are involved in all the aspects of the Group and some who cannot manage to attend the meetings but who turn out every year to work for the Show, some shy souls who are regulars, but who keep a low profile, except for Show time, when they are there in the front line, doing sterling service and playing a vital role in the day......all sorts of wonderful people, so typical of this fantastic Club . Fondest thanks and congratulations to you all!  8) :-*

Terrific pics and plants, congratulations to all.
Have to say I really enjoyed seeing people as well as the plants, I am starting to recognize people ( just a few but it's a start) ;D

Believe me Maggi, the overseas members are hugely appreciative of all the efforts of the show teams and especially of the Forum team which shares it all with us.
