1 The Gardening Scotland display had exactly the same structure as our display at Chelsea, but the plants were almost entirely different.
2 We still used lots of saxifrages in the alpine area, most of them 'Nicholas', but they were different plants, here with more upright flowering stems.
3 Lewisias still had a major role, but now we also had Aster, Celmisia and Calceolaria.
4 A great 'froth' of Saxifraga 'Nicholas', with pink Sedum pilosulum underneath.
5 In this corner Daphne cneorum was wonderfully scented, with small Anemone plants scattered through the zone.
6 A new approach was pioneered by Monica and Coreen, who produced this 'meadow' of Primula, Meconopsis, Dactylorhiza and Thalictrum.
7 On the other side of the display Graham and Stella used Meconopsis, Trilllium, Corydalis and Primula to give a contrasting effect.
8 As always we had an area with lots of little primulas, at the bottom of a narrow cleft ...
9 ... which was so dark that the Primulas in the muscarioides section could hardly be seen, but a pale pink Ramonda at the top glowed, with the light beyond shining through it.
10 Our 'standing stones' at the top were complemented by spires of Campanula moesiaca ...
11 ... while the screes with Bukiniczia and Aciphylla had Erigeron borealis and Lewisia rediviva to give colour.
12 Overall, the dominant plant was probably Meconopsis - again. We were told that this was probably better than the Chelsea display - which we had thought to be our best yet. Anyway, good enough to be awarded a Premier Gold medal - a very satisfactory end to the show season.
