I have been remiss in not posting photos of the Glenbrook Trophy Class at the Canberra Show. It is a keenly contested class with Keira Bulbs and Lawrence Trevanion competing with their latest creations. This year Glen Sheldrick also competed.I have included some close up shots using my macro lense so you can see them more clearly than in the group photos. I have often wondered how a judge with poor eyesight would get on judging this class as the flowers are quite small (micro minis). Both Keira Bulbs and Lawrence Trevanion had very nice miniature forms of Narcissus Triandus Triandus. I was impressed with Lawrence’s 2W-WWY seedling that is a small miniature. We are starting to see quite a deal of colour in the miniature classes at the Canberra Show.

    I should have added that Lawrence described his cordubensis seedling as a split cup. It raises the question as to whether it is heavily scalloped or split.
