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.
