Due to taking  rather a lot of plants your correspondent  won the Reid  rose bowl for most points, the Henry Archibald rose bowl   for 3 plants from different genera, the Midlothian vase for best rhododendon and the Alf Evans quaich for an ericaceous  plant other than a  rhodie.

The hall looks so much better with that dark red area on the lower wall painted grey!
 Some super award winning plants there- and well done to Richard Green!  Richard does so much for the  Club in all manner of ways, on top of his work as SRGC Treasurer, so it's a wonder he has time to tend such lovely show planrts! Welll done, Richard.

 Great pix, Stan!! And congrats on your own "haul" of awards!  Your ilk are a Show Secretary's dream!

Terrific to see the Shows back again!
