From the Show Secretary: It seems that " at the moment all traffic entering from the south is diverted over Bridge of Dee ( which is one way), then has to either go along the riverside, or along Holburn street Holburn bar, to get on to Great Southern road to pick up the usual route to the park via Murray terrace. King George bridge is only open southbound. This may change in a couple of weeks as work switches to the southbound carriageway of King George bridge. This is causing major delays (30 minutes plus)at busy times. Hopefully it should be fairly OK early on the Saturday morning oof the Show, but it is certainly worth alerting people. "

From Ian Young, judging today at the Aberdeen Show, comes this image of the Forrest Medal winning plant - a super pot of  Paris quadrifolia shown by John Lee from Glasgow.....



Congratulations, John!

Another pic of John's Paris then Mike Dale's Primula kisoana  which took the Craig  cup for best primula. Your correspondent  retained the Walker of  Portlethen  trophy for most points in section 1 as well as the Simpson salver for a dwarf rhodo wth R. Madame van Heck; I also  received  a merit  certificate for a dwarf   Enkianthus.

Ian Christie received  two merit certs  for a Trillium and the Cypripedium parviflorum which won the top award a year ago. Dave Millward received a merit cert for Ramonda  Nathaliae which has also  won the top award in the past. Jill and Jim Cole-Hamilton won the Aberdeen Quaich for most points  in section 2 and the  Brian Bull trophy for class 63.
