Trillium Weekend in New Zealand
« on: August 14, 2011, 01:33:11 AM »
On October 8th and 9th, NZ Trillium Group will celebrate its 10th Anniversay in Timaru with another of the annual weekend events that have been so popular and enjoyable in the past. No doubt a few Forumists will post pictures after the event.

Some more nice plants, and sad to see the Irish boys out of the World cup.
Wales have an awesome team and are looking so good, I think they will give the All Blacks a run for their money in the final.............
Fingers crossed.

Good to meet you again too Doug. I thought your transition from Trillium to rugby wasn't even subtle there, until I saw the little guys in green jersies. ;D

Nice pics of him with the knobbly knees. :D

Got a bit of watering to do then I'll be back to here and pic processing. On the first day I took one shot then had a "batteries need replacing" message on the screen. Of course the spares were locked up in my camera case in Tim's car but for the rest of the day I had an official photographer and those will arrive in due course, on a disc from Oz. I have the second day's pics though. ::)

Guess that's what happens when one pays far too much attention to a set of knobbly knees Lesley. ::) ;D ;D

Nice pics Doug --well captured.

Yes a great weekend, well organized and we saw some super plants not all Trilliums.
Here are a few 'others' taken during the weekend and in a couple of gardens i visited on the way home.
