    Are you going to the Waikato one and I am green with envy at you going to the Melbourne Show. Always more room, I an sure there is spaces you do not use. Do you go to any other shows?

    You have to do what makes you happy. Have you been to Melbourne before? They have a great botanical garden. It will be lovey at this time of the year. Have you been to the Singapore Orchid Garden?
