My word, Elena! You weren't kidding!
Thanks so much! So great to see EYOF out there.

Nice Jersey, and what is Saint's Mount? Swithin x Mt. Toro? That's lovely!

Lol, that's only a small portion, I managed to run out of space on my 2gb memory card in the end :eek: Funnily enough I was just looking up Saint's Mountain on the RHS website, it is indeed Swithin x Mt Toro. That and Lady Isabel really caught my eye.

Glad everyone's enjoyed the pictures!

Elena, thanks a zillions times for those gorgeous pictures.
One after another one, I thought it will never end.
The man collapsing before the exhibition, does he look like me?
And is the exhibit EYOF's red phrags?
It is not a sign of thirst! he is just swooning from the effect of his addiction!:D

We bought a pack of Lupin seeds for boyfriend's parents and some catalogues. There is a sell off that starts tomorrow at 4 pm and lasts a couple of hours where the exhibitors will sell some of their plants. Unfortunately we only stayed in London until this morning so no live plants for us. EYIF said they weren't selling any of their plants. There's a huge orchid show in June so I'm saving my pennies for that anyway.

Doing it in one day was pretty tiring, especially since the weather was very warm by London/England standards. There were signs everywhere urging people do drink the free water that was provided but we still saw a man collapse right in front of one of the orchid exhibits :( I think we spent about 5 hours wandering around making sure we didn't miss anything.

MMMMM.. Eric Young flavum... Thanx for posting the photos.

There's a picture of one in their brochure. I never liked them that much but the colour of theirs is absolutely gorgeous!

A personal invitation, hmmm? Thanks, Paul, I've been toying with the idea, actually, and OH said he might consider driving me there although I must admit that as a relative newbie I'm finding the idea somewhat terrifying :eek:

Eric, do you still want a picture of that flavum?
