Yemen, what a country ... Haraz mountains, Socotra, Sana'a, Hadramaut, the empty quarter.... a country of stunning, mind altering beauty...and the friendliest of people.

Over 600 exhibits at the 2024 show plus sales area (absolute bargain prices on club stand and from a single nursery - whose stock was cleared very quickly) and a great cafe (I can testify to the quality of filled rolls and cakes! Alan Weepers SRGC council member and noted alpine shower/grower is also a member of the Fife Cacti Club and was helping out in the kitchen after having set up all the staging!).I've taken some images to convey an impression of the show which is the largest annual Cacti and Succulent Show in Scotland. Members of the public seemed to be in good attendance. The venue had parking for about 40 cars with plenty more within a short distance (plus easy public transport access by bus and, from July, the new railway station close-by).

(Thumb nail images seem to right themselves when one clicks them)
