Lovely pictures Brian, some cracking plants there, I would have been pleased to get anywhere near that quality. Did Brian Ellis have anything on show?

Brian - you have done us proud!!
I was there for the morning but I had to work this afternoon/evening.  I contemplated a quick post here to the Rhododendron thread - to let Maggi know her favourite genus had scooped a Farrer down south!   (BTW did you get a whiff of the scent on it?  Pungent is one word that springs to mind :P
I did take a few pictures, maybe one or two of plants you have not featured.  I will post when time allows.  Thanks for your great pics.

No David, nothing from me... I have a long way to go to reach the standards that were displayed today!

Tony, I think pungent is a good description.  I might be able to scrounge a few pictures from David, if he has taken pics of the labels!!

Thank you for all these pictures Brian.
Must have been a wonderful show. These Podophyllum and Thalictrum are real stunners!

Thanks Brian for some lovely shots. One correction, the 3 pan Ericaceae in class 25 was shown by Diane Clement. Hopefully some pictures from me later although I was guessing where to point my camera due to a view screen failure and as yet I haven't downloaded them. Now I must go and unpack yesterday's plants before I do anything else.

Apologies to Diane, I was basing this on the photo of the first card that I took...did I take photos of the wrong plants?

No problem, Brian.  You took the right plants but matched the wrong card.  The 3 pan Ericaceae was class 23 (my plants   ;D ) and that matches your pictures.  Class 25 was a one pan Rhodo which was won by Cecilia Coller with a magnificent R Yaku Fairy (maybe you didn't get a picture of that)

Thanks for all the pics, sorry we didn't meet up, we did debate how many forumists were there yesterday, so we need to add your name to the list.  There may be a few pix from me later.

Meanwhile, we are awaiting news and pictures from East Cheshire show, also held yesterday ...
