Maggi thanks for the pictures of the show. Really enjoyed that. Too many favourites to pick one out. Well done to everyone. Great show and great day out.

I did spot you in the distance, Angela, and I had a wee word with Maureen, Helen and Carol... but you were either shopping or watching the dog show... the golden retrievers were lovely , weren't they?



 Apologies, by the way, that neither Ian nor I managed to get photos of the RBGE  display.  :-[ :-[

Buying plants and watching the dog show  ;D came how and took one look at my old man, got the brush out and gave him a groom. That's my golden retriever I am talking about not the other old man in the house.

Many thanks Maggi, some smashing stuff on the benches.

As Frazer said, there were fewer plants on the bench than might have been hoped for but it was still a lovely show.  Julia Corden and her Gang worked hard, as ever to give us all a good day and the pleasure of the very large hall, even with its rather odd lighting, is that there is plenty space so it never feels crowded.

Thanks for taking the trouble to show all these lovely plants, Maggi.  Disappointed I couldn't be there to see them in the flesh.  Ah well there's always next year.  see you at Nottingham.
