It is not always the top table flowers that catch the eye at the shows .
This vase of Ruby Lustre , although unrewarded by the judges , really
impressed me at our late show . .Probably the deepest red / pink that I saw
this season — stunning ,vibrant colour . Three even flowers , not large but good size ,
very clean , smooth white perianth , a few nicks to deter the judge , good tall stems ,
long but strong neck — I was very impressed .

2 W – R , — Ruby Lustre , — Raised by Colin Crotty , Pleasant Valley Daffodils.
Grown and shown by Ralph Mountfort .

Asked and was given the three to take home .Quite bit of good pollen , I spread
the love on Cape Point and a few other late show whites .

Sorry , done it again ; trying new formats that I can,t reverse .
Cheers John .

    Thanks John. I heard about this impressive vase too and am so glad to see the photos. One to try and buy. I love the depth of colour.
