Flower Show and Tea – 2015 Edition

Flower Show and Tea – 2015 Edition

Despite several days of rain that flattened a few choice blooms just before the event, exhibitors managed to come up with their usual stunning displays for Chester Garden Club’s traditional Flower Show and Tea.  This year’s show, held at the end of July,  inspired exhibitors to be particularly creative in interpreting the theme – The World Around Us.  One of those exhibitors is an inspiration for the rest of us: young Lila entered her creation in an adult design class and, after the votes were counted, she had won the popular People’s Choice award, the first time it has gone to a junior exhibitor.

Winner of the Popular Choice award, eleven-year-old Lila also took home first prize in the children's
Eleven-year-old Lila not only took home a first prize in the Children’s Design Class but also won  the Popular Choice award for her entry Elegance.

Some of the volunteers who made the show a success are pictured in the gallery below.

The following gallery includes a few of the prize-winners who collected ribbons or trophies at the Show, along with examples of the many lovely arrangements entered in the design categories.  A future post will show additional winners and arrangements, along with a few exhibits in the horticultural competition.
