Prince Charles visited our stall in Albany Show 2015

Albany Show  2015   was  something special.

The Bearded Iris  flowers   done us proud  we won 3 classes as  well as the champion Iris  for the show.
The long hot dry Spring  made it hard to have real top quality  flowers, as everyone  was  in the same boat  it was  put in what you have  and see how   it stands up.  That was Friday.
Saturday  the whole town of Albany was  talking about   the visit of  The ROYALS we hoped that  we would  see them.
To standout  in the crowd  I wore my red Indian  costume .
I  had  Camilla  walk  to me  and she was taken   with the   flashy  red   Costumes she Said “ want a splendid outfit “  I said “I was trying to out do you” Camilla said “ well you certainly have done that. I really  love it” and then she  walk on.
10 minutes later  Prince Charles  came out of the pavilion he was being directed away  down the road and I thought my chance  to meet him was gone. He glanced back  and  stopped in his tracks  and turned and came back  just to meet me. Charles said “ you have won the prize
I said “what have I won” Charles  said “for the most glamourous  outfit. It reminds me of  my Uncle , Louis Mount Batten he was in India.”
We  talked  about  where I got the costume  I said in Kolkata   India .
And  where I was from in Collie  western Australia  . He asked  where that was I said 250 kilo metres from here . He said what a splendid  effort  you have made   and thanks  very much, And the  he  left me.

We had  a very  nice Albany Show it will  be remembered   for a long time.
