AGS North Midland Show

Crikey, I don't believe I'm first! Buttercup must have stopped on the way home. A few pictures to get you started, more after ER

Large 6 pan entry which won Ian Kidman an AGS medal
Primula Broadwell Milkmaid which was part of the 6 pan but also got its very own Certificate of Merit
Morisia monanthus
Dionysia diapensifolia

Now I'm off to watch ER and find the elusive 'more flattering picture' of that young lady from Wolverhampton. Watch this space!

Last of the plants. At this point my camera went all funny and I missed some rather nice plants includin gone very spectacular parasitic plant whose name escapes me. I hope someone else captured it because its like may never be seen again.

Myosotis pulvinaris (not sure it actually is)
Primula marginata
Benthamiella longifolia
Fritillaria ehrhartii

Last 2 pictures, not of plants.

Firstly, exhibitors enjoying a well earned lunch break and then I think I'll call the next one 'Sister Act'. Sadly my hired hand, tasked with the job of getting the ultimate flattering photo, suffered some camera shake and so we must wait another week at least to satisfy the needs of our pudding eating forumist ;D

Super shots Mr. R. ..... it may look like I was following you around the show hall but our images were captured in a different order....

We all look VERY cheerful in the pub....we must have been waiting for the desserts (or John Dower's drink bill)!   :o

Anyway here are a few of my shots to keep the show theme running....
