This photo shows the same purple water lilies as previous photo - but in afternoon hours. While this photo was taken at 15:06 KHT - closing time for purple water lilies however is typically already before noon. In Cambodia the purple water lilies are the earliest I have seen so far to close the blossoms. All others seen so far have closing time sometimes during mid afternoon hours.

Nice violete flowers
We got a silver-gilt medal which we are very pleased with, we're really pleased because it's our first Tatton. The judges did say that they'd like us to do a larger stand and that our plants would really suit a larger exhibit. One of the reasons why we create a display of this size is because it fills one lorry! We never know how the plants will go down when we come to a new show and especially one in a different climatic area, but so far so good. Next week we're going to the Taunton flower show where we're exhibiting our own plants and planting a garden, then Rob and I are off for three days to an undisclosed, secret location to reflect on the last few months and plan for the year ahead.
