Chicky.

 

For goodness sake, please don't misunderstand or be put off by me.  In all honesty.  I would do my utmost to encourge everyone to visit these shows.  Believe me.  They are certainly an eye opener.  Over the years I have witnessed highs and lows inthe gardening world.  Who knows?  perhaps the general world affairs are getting most people down.  Add that to the most unsettled weather we have had over the past couple of years.  I do believe that to see flowers in bloob, really perks people up.  Even as in some cases, the joy might be somewhat short lived.  I say.  Go for it.

 

Just as a remider to forum members.  The Orchid Festival is on at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, until March 8th.  If you are interested in Orhids.  Then try and get there.

I went to the orchid festival at Kew last year.  There were some lovely Orchids.

We arrived just after it opened at 10 and, as usual, we really impressed. As there were a large number of mature men with beards all looking the same we were unable to identify M.

Next time perhaps.?
