Hello OAGC Garden Club Members,
I hope that your summer has been a good one. My garden has benefitted from the extra time that I have had to devote to it. We are so fortunate to have a little plot of land to beautify. Gardening has been a comfort and a blessing for all of us at this time.
With all the cancelations of our flower shows this yeardoing a “virtual” flower show has been on my mind. How fun would it be to do an artistic arrangement in the comfort of your home, enter it for competition, and not have to transport everything to a show! That sounds pretty intriguing to me!
So with that in mind Doris Hager and I collaborated on writing OAGC’s first “virtual” flower show. For this competition you will do your design at home, take a picture of it and then send it to me via email along with your entry form.
For our first attempt at this type of show we decided to keep things simple and not complicated hoping that many of you will want to enter this show. There are no size restrictions on the designs except for the small and miniature designs and we trust that you will measure those yourself and be within the guidelines for those two designs. Also there are no class entry limits. Each exhibitor may enter as many classes as you choose but you may only enter each class once. We also included a novice class for those of you that have maybe never entered a state flower show competition.
Please read over the schedule carefully. If there are any questions please contact me. Entries will be received until September 30, 2020.
So here is your chance to have some fun entering a flower show from the comforts of your own home.Doris and I are looking forward to seeing your creations. We hope that you take the challenge!
