Flowers are lovely, generally smell wonderful, and can brighten up a room, or garden. For some of us (myself included), growing flowers isn’t easy; for others, flowers abound and flourish, with seemingly little effort.
If you have a green thumb, and your garden is overflowing with flowers, keep in mind the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo flower competitions.
There are a variety of ways to present the flowers, both cut or potted. For cut flowers, either one or three blooms at a time can be entered, depending on exactly what kind of flower it is.
Then there is the flower arrangements division. Here you can display a variety of mixed flowers on a variety of themes.
There is even a special class for just men to enter.
For the potted plants division, not only flowers can be entered, but also succulents and herbs.
A list with all the diafferent classes and categories can be found on page 29 of the North Thompson Fall Fair & Rodeo Catalog.
