I have been participating this year in the level 1 floral design workshop offered through my garden club. Today at our May meeting the club sponsored a flower show and I entered a design in a class reserved just for the first year students—New Sprouts.
This is a building year for the club’s flower show, the first held after a long hiatus. As such, no prizes were awarded this year in the floral design category, rather all entrants received written comments from the judges. On my card I was thrilled to see good remarks for scale, proportion and container.
There was also a horticulture component for which prizes were awarded. I look forward to learning more about the horticulture side next year. I forgot to take my camera to the meeting today but had plenty else to remember, so I am not surprised.
My floral entry was a traditional round table design. I purchased Eucalyptus, Alstroemeria, Chrysanthemum and Roses. The rest of the flowers came from my garden.
