Sorry Brian !
Not at all Luc, I was extremely pleased with my purchases.  I had resolved not to take too much money as I knew I would probably spend whatever amount I took!

The auction was, as always, superb.  Wonderful lots for sale including Erythronium 'Rosalind' and Galanthus 'Elizabeth Harrison', 'Creme Anglaise' and 'Glenorma' to name but three.  Someone got an absolute bargain cold frame, one of Norman's super slate troughs and a signed copy of a Kit Grey-Wilson book as well as other lots.  A lot of forum 'lurkers' were in attendance as well as forumists many of whom we didn't get time to speak to.  It was indeed a lovely day David although we were hoping it was chucking it down at home to get some water in the barrels! - it wasn't.  There weren't many people walking back to their cars empty handed so hopefully the vendors had a good day too.  Thanks to Rod and Jane for hosting the occasion in their lovely garden.

For a man spending (someone's!)  last tenner, Brian, you look to be having a grand time.  How lovely to see all those happy people on such a lovely summer's day.

Good friends, good weather and excellent plants.  What more could you wish for :)  ;) :)

The garden was looking spectacular.  Took my camera, but unfortunately left it in the car.  As parking was a long way away uphill, I decide to rely on others and David came up trumps as usual.
