Mick, thanks for the great photos of the Show!  It's wonderful to see lots of Primula and now Fritillaria and Rhododendrons

Fritillaria hakkarensis has a wonderful pattern and Iris attia is a fabulous colour and shape but what caught my eye most?  Saxifraga fortunei 'Early Ruby'  8)

Good to see so many pictures on  line already, been a lovely day here today, strange warm yellow thing in a blue sky, not seen it this year so far. Was an excellent show with a very wide range of plants on display. I will add afew now, more later. I will try to avoid to much repetition
Draba longisiliqua shown by Robert Rolfe
Alkanna aucheriana shown by Ivor Betteridge. Although there is a little blurring I could not miss out on a picture of one of my favourite plants
Androsace breviscarpa shown by Margaret Pickering who also showed
Benthamiella patagonica in the cushion class
