Clean even a former colonist can understand, but dressed?

I don't think it is a black tie thing, Billy.Wink
I believe Chris is referring to the fact that the soil surface is weed free certainly, possibly dressed with mosses or grit.

Another image to us Southern Rednecks is a deer gutted and skinned.
And with the title "Game Fair" as in wild game, this image is more appropriate.
I do enjoy the differences in our language.

We were very lucky to have Malcolm Driffield from Wessex bonsai society to judge the show and present the prizes

ChrisBray won the best conifer, and Gerwyn Renolds took the cup for the best broard leaf

It was a very wet weekend which makes it difficult on a field site

But still the crowds came

As expected, a wonderful display of top notch trees from the Welsh lads. Some excellent work coming out of the valleys, and no mistake!

Well done indeed. You lads keep giving me something to aim at.

Take that as you will Laughing
