Start Getting Ready For The 2012 North Thompson Fall Fair & Rodeo

If your garden is blooming maybe it’s time to enter the fair

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.

You can also contact the Flower convenors – Diane Bloomfield at 250-372-9564, Dodie Lysak at 250-376-7472, or Heather Wiebe at 250-579-8916.
