    Great photos John. I really like the Pinto Pony intermediate from Denise. I must agree that the colour is fantastic.

    Keep the photos coming please

  2. Robert Moore, Scotland Robert Moore, Scotland says:

    I’m very taken with Wilfred Hall’s 2Y-R Intermediate I was likewise attracted to Eskedos the South Island Intermediate premier 2011 also by Wilfred and shown by Alistair and Joan Davey. They are of particular interest since I grow some of John Gibson’s Craig Stiel  progeny

  3. Margaret Seconi, New Zealand Margaret Seconi, New Zealand says:

    Thanks John for copying the photos for me. I look forward to some Hutt show ones coming up now especially the Champion Blooms for the NDSNZ site & that of our two new NDS/Central members, Gordon & Diane Purdie with their novice bloom. Nancy, can the Show Champion blooms be taken from these photos for the NZ website please? Also the Diamond Lass photos for Daffseek. That would save me sending them to Denise.
