Presented by Svetlana McCoy-Rusanova

“Irises—Arranged and Unarranged”.

Svetlana McCoy-Rusanova

The Olympics are over (congratulations to team USA) and the weather should start to cool down.  So, it is out to the garden and time to think about the Fall 2016 Flower Show which will take place on Tuesday, October 11 2016.

Helpful Information:

There are Four Sections and 47 Categories for this year’s show.

For Photography, there are six categories including photograph of bird(s) which, yes, can include chickens.

In Potted Plants, there are thirteen categories including unusual container which can be anything from a wok, boot, old handbag, box, or log to a painted flowerpot.

In Specimens, there are 21 categories. The judge’s advice is to keep your specimen as tall as possible, leave leaves on stem, but cut off any bug eaten or burnt leaves.

In Arrangements, there are six categories. With the exception of number six, you may add any embellishments to your arrangement. For an example, if you would like to add a train going around your Holiday Centerpiece, go for it.

If you have any questions about the Fall Flower Show, please contact Peggy at paw0123@verizon.net
