For those in our area who cannot make the trip to the Philadelphia Flower show this year, a flash of flowers fitting and fun can be seen in Greenwich today and tomorrow!
“The Name of the Game” a GCA major flower show is being held at Christ Church in Greenwich CT and open to the public today and tomorrow. Being on a Judging panel yesterday, I got to see the show before it opened! Flower arrangers take note! There is something for all tastes and styles. This particular class had AMAZING entries, and I don’t know how the judges were able to pick one over any other!
I am astonished at the artistry and skill exhibited. The interpretations in each class are always inspiring and the creativity called upon is incredible! Even the more traditional designs show great execution and design expertise.
I would not normally tell my fellow bloggers about my own small success at this show, but if you read my post last year at Mother’s Day, you may be interested to know that the very same orchid that my son gave me…..was nurtured all year and it came into bloom just IN TIME for this show! AND it was given a blue ribbon!
Thank you, dear son, for offering the challenge to give orchids another try! Try, try again.
There is so much more to show you, but I can’t show it all. I will leave you with my favorite exhibit, which called for a miniature garden – a scene suggestive of a Monopoly board. All plants grown by the exhibitor. This was “Park Place.”
