Setting Up The Show...

Getting everything in place for the Windsor African Violet Society's annual show, which will be judged tomorrow morning and then open to the public on Saturday.
Doreen is doing entries, I'm doing classifications, and everyone else gets to do the worst part: Placement (then rearranging, then placement, then rearranging some more.) Eff that!
Entries & classifications is where it's at, suckaaaaaaz!
I entered 5 plants. I woulda had better luck entering what I grabbed at LLG yesterday, but I had witnesses that knew I got them yesterday, so I couldn't pull it off.

And I know you're all wondering what I got while I was there...
I left a couple plants there, I swear... 
Hope you all enjoyed this virtual visit!!

Note: This is a back-dated entry, I actually went three weeks ago, but I've been busy preparing my life for upcoming scary surgeries on my GirlyBits™ in a coupla weeks, and then convention a coupla weeks after that. I'm really sorry for not getting it up sooner. But at least I finally did!

Guess Where I Went Today.....

Here's a hint: I snapped this selfie while I was ALL ALONE in the special back room.... 

"Hay, Sorano--All your chimeras are belong to meeeeee!"

Yep, yep. Had a great visit to Lyndon Lyon Greenhouses today.
You'll have to wait a few days for all the pics I took, I'm having myself a VERY busy violet week!
