Glasgow show at Milngavie 2 May 2009
« on: May 02, 2009, 09:09:14 PM »
Just back from the Glasgow show at Milngavie -pronounced Mill-guy !  By common consent the star of the show was a delicate little Delphinium chrysotrichum var tsarongense.
Some pictures attached.

014 Gentiana acaulis
015 Haberleaferndai-coburgii 'Connie Davidson'
017 Pleione vesuvius 'Aphrodite'

Super photos, Tom; the light in that hall is good , is it not?

I see a great selection of good plants there, but perhaps the benches are not as full as one would have hoped :P  
We are finding that, although  plants are flowering heavily, many are going over very quickly this year ....perhaps others are finding that to, resulting in fewer plants on the bench.  :-\

I'm wondering what will be in flower for the Aberdeen show in a couple of weeks ; perhaps it will be a fantastic foliage event?

Your opening shot of the gentian is delightful... speaks of spring in the mountains, for sure.  I do covet that wee Delphinium, what a corker ..... the flowers are like tissue paper with stamens of velvet.... I love it and I'm not surprised it was a big hit with others.  Is it from the "Veteran Vet"... George Young ?

I have heard that the Forrest medal went to Brian Davisdon, of Gatehouse of Fleet, for a Trillium.... though my jungle drums have not disclosed which trillium!  ::)
Congratulations to Brain on this success.... Glasgow is proving a fertile medal hunting ground for him  :)

Everything looks good, Anthony ......I see that our English chums were well represented in the hall  ;D

I spot the hairy Northumbrian, Ian Kidman and Brian Burrow... and that's Alan Spenceley between them,(if I'm not mistaken..... I haven't seen Alan for ages)  talking to Cyril Lafong in pic 034.

Yes, a good show Maggi. The Forrest Medal was won by Brian's Trillium pusillum ozarkum. Ron McBeath was present with flowers and a bottle of Malt for his farewell to the Glasgow show. The prize giving was a happy event, although I'm not sure what put the wind up Ian (the Christie kind)?

150 Ian Christie and Brian Davidson, the Forrest Medal Winner
145 Stella Rankin in a haze
151 John Lee , Ian Bainbridge, President Ian Christie, and the nominated new president, Liz Mills
152 Ron McBeath
154 John Lee , Bill Robinson, the Show secretaries; Ian Bainbridge ; Ron McB.

Wonderful images Tom and Anthony ... many thanks ... it looked a super show.  Such a shame that all these shows are on the same day.
