Stan that must have took you ages, sorting all those pictures out. Much appreciated. It's great to see so many wonderful plants.

I know that every picture possible has been posted but here are a few of the plants that I particularly liked.
Erythronium citronella x oreganum
Fritillaria kotschyana
Iris bucharica - a particularly neat form from the Cauldwell's
Narcissus bulbocodium obesus - can't miss out Bill's pot
Paraquilegia anemonoides
Townsendia rothrockii - travelled well from Hexam
Pulsatilla vulgaris - a very nice section two plant that I was told was lifted from the garden

David, it seems to have been a lovely show... we can't have too much.

Love the Townsendia!
