See you all there - watch out for the rugby scrum in the plant sales room. David & I will be sitting in the entrance foyer with the books, at least one of us will :) We take it in turns...

Just back from a well attended show at Edinburgh.  No surprises as to who won the Forrest medal - Mr. Lafong .  The value of his Pleione exhibit would probably pay off the national debt!
The pictures will give an idea of what the event is like for those who cannot attend.

I must say I am always jealous of the opportunities you have for plant purchases. We simply don't see this selection here in Ireland and getting plants is always a challenge.

Is the green colour of the table coverings a bit strong? It seems to be too dominant for the flowers.

As an Irishman you will be an expert on green !  It is probably more accentuated in the pictures.  Some more

Great show, Tom.

Is that a young dog in the last shot?

Lots of photos from Edinburgh for you.... both Ian and I were snapping away..... but too much to do here tonight to catch up on 30 hours away before work  at the BBC tomorrow ( how does it pile up so??)
Ian will be watching Malaysian Grand Prix, so you'll likely not get much sense out of him! ::)

Great pix, Tom..... well, some of them, at least!  :P
I have to tell you folks that Tom said the "untitled group" picture was of a witches coven ....... we wouldn't have minded but Sandy Leven had not 2 minutes before said the same thing! Tom and Cindy went off looking happy enough so I don't think they were too worried about any curses from our cauldrons!

 Paddy, the wee dug is our westie, Lily .... she's ten years old. She will be very tickled that you thought she might be a youngster!   Jean Wyllie will be less impressed that I took my wee dug to be "the most important one" rather than her!! ;D ;)

I thought I recognised the dog in that pic? Young at heart.

Wasn't Paddy asking whether she was a Young dog, not a young dog  ;D  ;D  ;D
