    Default Cymbidium 'Frans Gold'-a 1st prize winner!

    At the show today, i was lucky, because i was the only novice to show a cymbidium. So lo and behold, i got 1st in the Novice Standard Cymbidium section!

    I didnt actually grow this, a friend did, but she asked me to show it on her behalf. The plant was gifted to her for christmas by yours truly!
