District V held a flower show in Mount Airy at St. James Episcopal Church on May 19th. Our Marjorie Schiebel was the Flower Show chair and Carroll Garden Club had excellent participation in both assistance in setting up the show on May 18th and in contributing entries. The show was well attended and the theme “Riding the Rails” was admirably illustrated by the design entries.
This post is heavily picture-centric . I misplaced the list of ribbon winners from our club for the various classes. When I find it, I will add to this post. Meanwhile, if I have erred in attributing a photo to a particular class PLEASE CORRECT in the comments.
Entry Greeting Table
Due to the early onset of spring, there had been concern that a number of the Horticulture classes would be poorly represented since many specimens had either passed their prime or were no longer in bloom. However, we persisted.
