Hello Friends

The Convention was held in the Hilton Minneapolis Bloomington. Since it was so late, there seemed to have been a perception that it would be a very small show, but over 1600 stems was quite respectable for this convention, I think.

The Gold Ribbon was awarded to a 2YYW-Y  seedling of the Havens which was also the intermediate single stem winner. The subtle colors of this flower are challenging to capture.

I included quite a few photos of flowers that are not often noted in shows around the country. Also, you’ll see some awards that might be missing here. I was called to assist in a humanitarian effort that required enough time to keep me away from the rest of the show. So my apologies for missing some of the award photos. Especially the purple ribbon which was the 5 stem intermediate award winner. Also, a new exhibitor won the Dutch award (that looks like I also missed) and was a student in the judging school before convention. She made quite an extraordinary effort to attend this show with flowers in tow over a 2 day period across the country.

This sadly concludes my photos of the 9 shows that I visited this show season. I wish you all the greatest pleasure in your gardening experiences and may you receive amazing blessings of flowers and plants in your endeavors this year and next.

Until next time, enjoy these final photos of the season.

    Many thanks to Tom and Kirby and others who posted photos of show winners.  The great photos really show off the flowers.  It takes a lot of time and effort to take the photos, and then get them posted–a real labor of love.  So, many, many thanks.
