Saxifraga in bud

It looks as if this saxifrage from Robert Potterton is going to be quite a picture when the flowers open

A final group shot of some very nice Narcissus

Due to some dire weather there were not as many people as one would wish and so the plant numbers were down, as well. There were not so many nurseries, either but it was a good day nonetheless. In fact the drive over was an exceptionally good one with dry roads, which were quiet. Let's hope the next show day has better weather.

Thanks for showing these, Liz, I'm sorry I couldn't be there, so it's nice to see them now. I particularly enjoy the hepaticas
