This year the late show was held in Omagh at Brian Duncan’s.  This is a very informal show allowing members to meet and show any late flowers they have.  Classes are made up on the day and some multi vase entries may be combined efforts.  More a day to admire the last of the flowers for another season and discuss the merits of the various flowers on show.  Brian Duncan on his home patch had assembled a magnificent display of daffodils.

    Thanks  for  all  the  postings  Derrick .  A  very  good  photo  of  PINK  HAZE    that  certainly  shows  the  flush  in  the  perianth  .I  find  both  pink  and  orange flushed  perianths  quite  intriguing  and  have  discussed  this  with  leading  Kiwi  growers  Colin  Crotty  and  John  Hunter  .  Both  feel  ,  as  I  do  ,  that  if  this  factor  was  worked  on  for  another  5 – 6  generations  ,  this flush  could  really  be  intensified  and  give  some  beautiful  ,  truely  all  pink  flowers  .

    Oh  for another  50  years  .         Cheers   John .
