You'd wonder how on earth the exhibitors manage to transport some of those lethal weapons, let alone how someone buys a monster from the sales table and gets it home on the bus  8)

A case of driving VERY carefully when you might end up with one of those huge spiky creatures in the back of your neck after an emergency stop.  ::) :o
Makes transporting alpines or even standard fuchsias to a show  just a doddle, don't you think?

Thanks Stan.  A nice show it was. 

PS After much searching I now realize the beautiful clump in the large pot without a name is not called The Sisters of Bethany but instead refers to the statue behind said succulent................... ::) Dah.
