Australia Trip - October 2017 - SAGPS Annual Pelargonium Show and Sale

Always, one of the highlights of my trips to Adelaide in October is the South Australian Geranium & Pelargonium Society Annual Show and Sale.   My sister Pauline and her husband Peter are members of the Society, as am I.   I love helping to set up the show on the Friday, helping in any way I can over the weekend and then clearing up at the end.    I know many of the members, so it is lovely to catch up with them and to meet any new members that have joined since my last visit.
