Not at all.  First of all, you're not going to be able to see the gardens of 
all the people who enter a flower show - maybe as many as 50 or more.  
Secondly, many of these gardens aren't exhibition quality, even though the 
specimens they produce are.  I know my garden wouldn't excite a lot of people 
- has weeds, some plants that don't do well, etc. - yet I can usually produce 
a handful of blue ribbon exhibits.  Also, isn't it exciting and inspiring to 
see tables of prime specimens all set out together for comparison? As you may 
have guessed, I love flower shows.  Auralie
