That's right, and when I find my camera I can prove it! Angela also won the Brian Bull Memorial Trophy for the best two pan exhibit in Class 63 of Section II... a rather nice Caithness Glass bowl that can be admired in her sitting room for the next year  8)

I must add my congratulations to everyone who showed plants as well as the fantastic teas, cakes and rolls I was almost first in the queue very early. I post a few pictures, cheers Ian the Christie kind.

I'm still wrestling photos here, amongst other things.... but Angie had other great cyps, too. There were two labelled macranthos that were quite different and I wonder if there had been a label mix-up but I can't tell one from another so perhaps I'll find photos that you cyp fans can work out the names of later!I never had a chance to speak to Angie about it on the day... there was too much going on!

Judges John Lee, Jean Wyllie and Glassford Sprunt

Two large and pretty Saxifragas... and some of those judges again!

The one above is familiar to me Maggi.

They should all be familiar to you Anthony  ;D the others that I bought a few years ago are still not open yet.
Labels , one of the Cyps should have been Emil. Still have some plants with wrong names, my great niece had a bit of fun with my plant labels one day.

I just love Cyril's Silene hookeri.

Great pictures, thanks.
