Flower Show Winners


I insisted that Roger enter his flowers in the flower show at the fair.  He asked me if we needed glass containers.  I said not to worry. We could recycle plastic water bottles for vases.  When I arrived with our flowers, I was confronted by the site of many gardeners and their carefully arranged and labeled flowers in delicate little glass bud vases and containers.  Yikes!  Did I miscalculate!  One woman was misting the flowers as she was checking them in with the judge.  Still, we won second place for our dahlia, third place for our zinnias, and third place for our marigolds.  The beautiful white gladiolus that I entered looked sad next to the winners, but, that’s just fine.  Wait until next year. . .
