       I don't say this to be bashing judges, but you are correct.  Weather 
has a major impact on the quality of the blooms.  In Kentucky, late cold 
spells, or a dry windy time in spring would dramatically reduce bud count and 
branching.  Some judges do take this into account, while others do not.
