the day before

In case you hadn't noticed... we have our gesneriad show this weekend.  ("We" being the National Capital Area Chapter of The Gesneriad Society, the DC area gesneriad group.)  Most of the show entries are on the tables now, and the rest should be arriving in the morning. It is quite a mad rush to get the entries in and ready for judging at 10 am. 

Although I spent all afternoon in the show room, I was too busy to look at the entries or take any photos (not that I would post them until after judging!).  I'm looking forward to some downtime on Sunday to browse the room. Photos forthcoming, of course.
