Flowers seen at Northern Ireland Shows 2011

The season here in N Ireland was compressed into about 2 weeks; however thanks to fridges etc we had shows until the season ended on Saturday 7th May at Omagh.

I’ve picked out a selection of flowers and faces that I hope viewers will find interesting.  I have deliberately avoided photos of the constant winners but hope I’ve included future winners.

  1. lovely pics Derrick, and how nice to see the smiling faces as well. I have added Temba to my wish list on the strength of your photograph.
