As  would  be  expected  at  the  seasons  late  show ,  we  had  a   good  display  of  poets  –  div  9  .Here  are  a  few  ,  all  N Z  raised  ,  that  caught  the  eye .

TIHOI

The  Premier  poet  was   the  very  round  TIHOI  .

 

 

 

 

KATEA  CHARM .

Isobel  Dreaver  raised  some  beautiful  poets  in  the  deep  south .  Fortunately  , Ron  Abernathy  has  named  and  registered  quite  a  few  of  the  Dreaver  poets  and  we  had  two  at  the  late show .KATEA   CHARM  has  a  very  strong  eye

IZZY,S  PRIDE

IZZY,S PRIDE

 

 

IZZY,S  PRIDE  is  also  very  attractive  .  these  two  were  shown  by  Wilf  Hall  ,  who  commented    that  they  are  a  good  style contrast  to  the  generally  much rounder and  larger , recent  registrations  from  the  Hamilton / Crotty line  .

McQUARRIE  A – 47  shows  that  Denise  has  also  produced some  beautiful  late  flowers  .A  few  other  flowers  at  the  late show caught  my  eye    .

 

 

 

IRISH  TRIP   7 O - O

IRISH TRIP
7 O – O

 

 

IRISH  TRIP    is  a  late  jonquilla  ,  shown  by  Reg  Cull ,  that  I  had  not  seen  before  .  Registered  as   7  O – O  ,  it  certainly  had  a  nice  even  flush  on  the  two  neat  heads  .

 

 

 

 

JUDY  COTTER 4 W - W

Reg  also  showed  JUDY  COTTER  ,  a  small  ,  all  white  double  that  I  had  not  seen  before  .  Very  flat   in  form  ,  not  much  over  Intermediate  size  .

 

 

GLENFORD - X - DEB,S  JOY .  2 W - PR

GLENFORD – X – DEB,S JOY . 2 W – PR

 

 

Perhaps  the  brightest  red  colour  in  the  show  was  JFM  seedling  ,  GLENFORD  – X – DEBS  JOY . A  round  flower  ,  good  size  ,  perianth  could  be  flatter  ,  but  deep  colour  that  did  not  fade  a  lot  .
