Chrysanthemum Society Show

Are you Long Island ladies going to the Chrysanthemum Society Show tomorrow?  
I was on the judging panel for the Design Division today (I'm not a NCS judge 
so of course wouldn't be allowed near the horticulture.)  It seems much 
smaller this year than previous years.  The Design Division  was very small.  A new 
section, however was the bonsai chrysanthemums.  These are incredible!  
Personally, I don't like bonsai - feel so sorry for those poor tortured, deformed 
plants.  However I think the amount of skill and work that goes into those 
thing is fantastic.  
Of course the connection is John Capobianco (I think that's how he spells 
it), the president of the LI Mum Society, is also a bonsai specialist.  My friend 
Joan Corbisiero, who is a NCS judge, cleaned up with best in show awards in 
three sections, including the bonsai.  She had five blue ribbons in the bonsai 
section alone.  Amazing!  I just can't imagine spending that amount of time 
and attention on something like that.

I began to think the whole business was more trouble than it was worth when 
we spent more than three hours in stop-and-go traffic on the way home.  What a 
nightmare that was.  Oh well.  Go see the Mum show if you can - not my kind of 
thing, but a real accomplishment.
