I think Carl mentioned something about the awards in the Convention Thread. I hope that means he and Mikey have some pictures of the winners.

Coboro's quote:
As we say goodbye to Wildwood Gardens, that brings us to the end
of the garden tours of the AIS 2015 National Convention.
All that is left is the final banquet and awards.

I love Moose Tracks!
Thro' all the tumult and the strife I hear the music ringing; It finds an echo in my soul— How can I keep from singing?

Zurbrigg/Mahan Seedling Cup - 'Royston Rubies' (Cordes, R. 2015) : A very pretty red.

Love Lynda's Moose Tracks, and Football Hero is pretty darn nice too.

I almost bought Swans In Flight this year. So I guess this means I like all the winners!
