5 days until the set-up for RHS exhibition

My worries at the beginning of today was not purely about botanical art and the RHS exhibition.

Last night I dropped my iPad on the floor. This morning I noticed that the corner was smashed and there was a big crack across it!

I use the iPad so much in communicating at the moment. On my computer I have so many screens up at the same time trying check that all the information I have is correct. I am also writing information panels about crab apples generally and each picture specifically, linking in parts of the pictures painted to give a good description of the exhibit.

With no iPad, how could I write about the results of the judging next Thursday? You would have had to wait until I got back home after the exhibition had finished on Saturday evening. How we depend on modern technology now!

In fact I am very lucky as once I had found out where I could get a new screen put on the IPad, my husband took it to the town where it could be repaired on the spot. He returned with it having been done – several hours later. I continued flapping in the shed whilst he was away!

Well I am reasonably happy with the generic description of crab apples, and the first specific information panel. My husband checked it out and he only found a couple of mistakes!! Hopefully I will get the other five written tomorrow, at the same time as doing the laundry.

Now the last glimpse of the Malus x sylvestri ‘John Downey’ in coloured pencil before going onto another crab apple tomorrow.

  1. Thank heavens for the Support Crew! Where would we be without them? My Fella has picked up things for me, set up market tents, driven me hither and yon, waited patiently, all because he knows how important it is for me. It sounds like your husband would do the same. 🙂

    1. I read this out to him Anne and he really appreciated your comment. I think I’m giving him a really hard time at the moment so I think he’s both glad to hear others provide a similar support and that we are grateful to our men.
