At a US show 2001. Second place, why ?? No comment. After judging was completed the public and many rose-exhibitors had asked me, if your bowl came in second, how does the Trophy-winner look ??? I did not complain, but many others did & wondered why ?
Now look at next image, the bowl which won the trophy !!!

The next day I was called by the Rose-show chair and he told me why it did not win :
# 1 : It was looking too, too professional !!!
# 2 : It was too big a display !
# 3 : It had too many blooms !!!
Note : The show-schedule did not limit the number of blooms, nor the size of the display !!
