So the whole show fit on a few tables, and it didn't take long to judge it. Which was good because after the judging, Mom and Aunt Linda and Aunt Judy had more time to shop for new plants to buy.
This is the plant that won the "Best Succulent" award. It's called a Haworthia truncata, and it looks like its leaves got eaten off by a rabbit or something. But they didn't get eaten off. That's just the way the plant grows.
After lunch, the three judges got to go see where Aunt Joyce and Uncle Jim live. Aunt Joyce has a great big, huge greenhouse with a ton of plants in it. And she sells these plants, and that is how she makes money. Sometimes she even comes to Kansas City to sell plants. Uncle Jim does not sell plants. He teaches in a university, and what he teaches is history, or at least Mom thinks that is what he teaches, but she can't remember for sure.
Here's the greenhouse behind the house where Aunt Joyce and Uncle Jim live. They just moved there a few months ago, and they had this greenhouse built. Also they had the fence built.
There are some funny signs on the fence.
