Saturday afternoon

Phwoar! This is Lachenalia aloides var. vanzyliae, grown from seed by one of our NCCPG members. The subtlety of the colouring is amazing. This has nothing at all to do with the subject of today's talk, which was 'Who's in Your Garden?'; the people behind the plant names. As usual with our meetings a hundred or so people spent a beautiful afternoon indoors out of duty to the group. They also bought some plants, books and raffle tickets to make money and brought some lovely things like this species amaryllis

for the display table. Gardeners are rather nice people.
