Many thanks to Cliff and Diane for these lovely images of the Blackpool Show; isn't it great that you can now get a flavour of the shows that are too far to travel to. I was also particularly glad to see that Spring is finally arriving. The normal succession of plants is starting, and the snowdrops are going over.

On that note, is Mike and Christine's Farrer-winning Cyclamen coum the same one I photographed at South Wales a month ago (and at Harlow and Loughborough) ? It is amazing how it has held its condition.

Watching these pictures being posted yesterday evening, I couldn't help wondering what Syd Cumbus' Gold Medal-winning photography exhibit was like; I'm sure Cliff didn't know how he was teasing me by saving it till last, but I'm very glad he has posted a picture now. What a wonderful display !
