Re: Rather sad

Probably would but the garden "clubs" in this area tend to be rather
"snooty" so I have never be attracted to joining them. I've volunteered
a lot with Master's Gardens but never with clubs.

That's really sad, Bonnie. Flower shows are one of the joys of my life. I 
in love with flower shows when I was about four years old and my grandmother 
had an entry in the local club's show - that club in the Florida panhandle 
exists, and I have been in touch with it in recent years. When we moved to 
York in 1953, a friend gave me a ticket to the big flower show in the old 
Wanamaker building, which burned down a few years later. One at the 
Colisseum in the early 60's was a real high point. Then I joined a garden 
club and one of my first acts was to participate in a flower show. Since 
that time I have been involved in, if not always chairman of, probably 40 
flower shows, and almost all of them have been a pleasure. There is a 
point in the preparations when everything seems to be pure chaos, but 
then a time comes when it's like jello setting and everything comes together 
to create a lovely scene of peace and harmony. 
Forgive me for running on so, but I really think it's sad that you have not 
ever seen a flower show. You will probably not be as charmed as I by one, 
but you will surely find something of interest and pleasure in any show.

I guess I was thinking more of botanic gardens than the flower shows. 
Must admit that although I have visited many botanic gardens, I have 
never been to a flower show.
