Rick those are amazing photos.  I thought I had seen all there was to see at that show but totally missed that wheelbarrow, bridge, mushrooms, green frog etc.  Must have checked out that garden from the opposite side only.

That venue is certainly better than Mt Cootha.  It was a wonderful display.

Ditto Rick. Thanks for the virtual tour. I agree the displays are lovely. I heard that they were better to view at the huge new venue due to the ability to walk around the whole display, versus against a wall.
BTW - the displays were not just by the Brom Society of Qld (Brisbane based), but also the Gold Coast society (yay team!) and Sunshine Coast society.

 
However, the show entries look minimal quantity-wise compared to usual. Maybe that's because they are so spread out? Or, many usual competitors are busy preparing for Darwin? I kinda like the more intimate smaller rooms at Mt Coot-tha.

Thanks for all the comments.

jaga - I don't know what the cross is on the Billbergia, it is only labelled "Cathrine Wilson Hyb". It is a nice looking Bill.

Kerry - all of the displays where great, the competition tables were a little light on but I can't complain because I was too lazy to put anything in as well.

Hi Rick,

Thanks for all the beaut pics!  After making it up to the terrific Mt Cootha show last spring, that looks to be even better with all that extra room, and as Kerry says, being to walk right around the exhibits is a real bonus.  Is the spring show going to be at this new venue as well?  I'm hoping to get up there again.

Cheers, Paul

Great photos Rick, you really covered the plant displays and venue well. Yes the new venue is fantastic + loads of parking. Just being able to walk 360o around the displays and being able to walk 3 abreast around the sales tables allows one to carry more and continue shopping.

I managed to convince myself to buy several new plants - just alittle something to feed the addiction.

It was said that numbers maybe alittle down compared to previous shows however when I left today, one couldn't walk around the sales tables without shuffling past people.

Thanks for all the pickies Ric. I was feeling a bit sad and sorry for myself at missing it, but feel much better now. The place looks huge! I went to Mt Coot-tha for the Spring sale in 2009 and could hardly move around the sales tables, aswell as having to line up for ages to pay for my purchases. The new venue looks much more customer friendly. I heard that last years autumn sale was a bit lighter than usual, so maybe its just the time of year. I know I get a bit tired at this time, and money gets a bit tight toward the end of summer. At least for me, anyway!
I hope all you other lot have a great time in Darwin, and that the cyclone doesn't make a mess of things. Hopefully there'll be some let up in the weather while you're there!
Ps, I'm guessing the society needs the funds to finance things related, such as magazines and meeting costs blah, blah. Sounds pretty normal to me.
