“Lest We Forget “
Flower Shows begin long before the scheduled date. Many gardeners begin by planting very early in order to have a plant in bloom for a show day specimen and / or planned design.

It takes so much thought and planning.
Each year members and community participants combine there abilities to bring everything together to produce a beautiful display. There is a schedule to prepare, a judge needed, trophy’s to polish, tea and sweets to plan and prepare, servers, set up and clean up crews. And most important “Flowers Flowers Flowers” to prepare.
Marion & Pam welcome guests
There are “Welcome” flowers and welcome from members.
This year, being the anniversary of the end of the first world war, our show was entitled “Lest We Forget”. The schedule design titles were reminders to all of events during times of conflict. The legion was tastefully decorated with military and war memorabilia.
Members helped as entries arrived and were placed.
The floral arrangements and specimens were especially stunning and entries showed skill in conditioning and preparation during the hot humid weather.
Carol, Pam and Brenda assisted Jana our judge.
Everyone is interested in the childrens entries.
