|Cindi, beautifully written article, it truly came across as being surreal! The Q-tip thing threw me for a loop😊|

|That WAS surreal, lol. Sounds wonderful to actually have been behind the scenes--I've never heard of anything like that.|

|Wonderful article, made me feel I was there and it brought memories of my experience with daylily exhibition shows! (I only entered one and got Best in Show!) Now I will have to search for a local rose show so I can see this in person.|

|I wish more there were more rose shows so everyone could attend one! The exhibitors at our show were friendly and took time to answer my questions and show me how to select and groom a rose. |
I meant to include a book reference in my article. It's a real interesting read, but nothing like the environment I found at our show.
