A Visual Recap of the APS 2023 Convention"

Travel virtually to the 2023 American Peony Society convention in Syracuse, New York with Nick Maycher, CPS Prairies Director, as he takes us on a visual journey full of awe-inspiring imagery. Nick will highlight the splendor of the garden tours which brought members to outstanding gardens with a focus on the contributions of Nassos Daphnis and Professor A. P. Saunders, as well as the flower exhibition which had the show tables blanketed with a symphony of showy flowers. Along the way we'll be introduced to colourful characters in the community and the staple activities of an APS convention.
