Many thanks David  

Thought I'd live dangerously and try a couple of different varieties this year! 

I had a little scout around a few sites recently for creams/whites but reckoned you'd be able to suggest something nice.

Don't think I have a pic on file, but you should be able to google for one.

It's a good doer and won't disappoint.

Do you grow different varieties each year or do you stick with favourites? I grew Cathy last year - a cream with lovely scent, but was a little disappointed with the colour sometimes- it was a bit 'muddy'. Is there a white or cream variety you can recommend?

Fairy.....sorry, didn't reply fully to this.

The best 'cream' I've ever grown (& judged) would probably be 'Bristol Cream'.

Good luck for tonight, Ann,,,,,hope you or anyone else would ever be afraid to share their efforts with Camera Corner.

Btw, I've never grown orchids either, but I have to say they are showy.

Thanks, ladies....sometimes it's hard to take when I  take nothing from this forum and all my efforts are to improve it for others.

Anyway.....Fairygirl, I grow mainly for cut flowers these days, so scent comes first, then appearance.  I still grow named varieties though....although I do sometimes view them from a judges perspective.

More great shots, Ann.....Biddulph Grange is quite near for me.

Did a bit of snapping around Bridgemere GC today.

'your say', I've found that ignoring trouble makers is the wisest option. However, in your case I need to make an exception.

You either substantiate your earlier accusation about my ownership of the sweet pea picture I posted, or apologise.......otherwise I will need to consider my options.

Louise, be assured you have been no problem at all.
