The Watrous collection calls for 12 miniatures spanning at least three divisions. This is the winning collection exhibited by Harold Koopowitz & Marilynn Howe. Normally, I’d try to straighten out a collection before photographing it, but I was in a hurry to photograph more winners before the show closed on Saturday. The decorated toothpicks mark flowers that were candidates for the Miniature Rose or Miniature Gold Ribbons and are a clue that the exhibited has been handled extensively after it was staged. There are five flowers in the back row, four in the middle row, and three in the front row. Going left to right then top down, the flowers are 03-234 8W-W (Pink China x N. dubius), 03-234/2 8W-P (Pink China x N. dubius), 03-089 3Y-Y (Pink China x N. assoanus), 03-234/3 2W-P (Pink China x N. dubius), 03-234/6 2W-Y (Pink China x N. dubius), 03-266/1 2W-P (Viennese Waltz x N. dubius), 99-108 7Y-Y (Little Gem x N. jonquilla), Itsy Bitsy Splitsy 11aY-O, 05-242 12W-Y (Beryl x seedling), 04-054 7Y-Y (N. jonquilla x N. assoanus), 04-143 10W-W (N. cantabricus x ?), 05-018 7Y-Y (N. rupicola x N. willkommii).
