Hello All.


The second show on our schedule was at Te Kuiti, about an hour’s drive from home.  We judge this show (our 38th year of consecutive attendance) and don’t usually exhibit.  However the David Adams Medal was on offer so we put an entry in to ensure that the allotted space was filled.  As it happened Graham Phillips also had an entry.  So the judging was done by six other exhibitors.  Our entry prevailed 5 votes to one!  The early, indeed very early season made the two entries reasonably good.  A photo of our entry is attached.  The Champion Bloom went to Graham with a Max Hamilton raised double nicknamed ChamKuiti as it is the second time it has had this honour.  Graham intends to register a name as it is a great market flower.  Photo also attached.  I will send a couple more pics of seedlings in another E Mail.






PS For those who know Max Hamilton he is having a pacemaker fitted today.  We all hope that this fixes the problem he has been having of late,  PR
