How can you not love this photo? Once again the McLean Library has come through and unearthed this image from the 1970 Flower Show. Here the horticultural sweepstakes winner, Joy Mackinney, is smooching her well-earned trophy at the annual awards luncheon. Photographer Edmund B. Gilchrist has certainly captured the dedication and passion that makes growing for the Flower Show such a rewarding process. I’m sure exhibitors of today — nearly 40 years later — can appreciate Ms. Mackinney’s moment of bliss.
