Glassford is amused at Cyril's explanation of how big the plant had grown


Truncated Dodecatheon


It wasn't only the plants that were brightly coloured


Back to a few shot more of the Arisaema griffithii... taken different angles, light,

Before long, though, the visitors were fewer and it was nearly time to pack up
At the entrance desk, Doug Evans looks like he's had enough, or is it just that Maggi, far right almost out of shot, is bending his ear?
near left, Rosemary Lupton, Jean Evans sorting the cash, Doug looking a bit doubtful!
 

I had spotted this cute little pine, with its candles, in the show hall..


It made me think of candle-lit supper with friends...



But that's not a great idea, you wouldn't be able to see us..



better to cast a bit of light on the subject


Yes, that is better.... a pleasant meal with friends to round of a lovely day...

Cheers, Everyone! Thanks to all the people who made the show such a success!

Maggie

You were asking what X Briggostemon is.  It is a hybrid between Briggsia aurantiaca and the little Ancylostemon humilis that we also showed.  This is the first year that it has flowered.

Sandy Leven's Aberdeen show report is online...see here:
http://www.srgc.org.uk/shows/aberdeen/report.html

A wee correction... Brian Hammond's display of Sedums was awarded  a GOLD medal, rather than a silver.

And wait till I see that Leven fellow... imagine showing a photo of the Judges getting their tea and scones with the jam still in the jar and using styrofoam cups? Yes, I know that's actually how it was, but there's no need to let everyone know!!

Well, the pics are finally downloaded, so working backwards, here are some additional pics from the Aberdeen Show.
Firstly the posy from Susan Band for Maggi: Tulipa sprengeri, PCIris hybrid and a blue poppy.
Then the much photographed Arisaema griffithii.
Two Australasians, well New Zealanders, specifically from David and Stella Rankin.
Cyril being presented with his award by Maggi.
Oxalis "Gwen Mc Bride"
Sedum pilosum from Brian Hammond's superb display.
Rhodo."Sarled" from Ian of the Christie kind.

Sorry if these duplicate others such as those on the Show report!
cheers
