Blood lily scoops top show honour

The Snells Beach Garden Circle Spring Flower Show was timed to perfection this month when the doors opened on the annual one-day event at the Mahurangi East Community Centre on September 1.

Club president Barbara Carpenter says entries were slightly down on last year, perhaps due to recent wet weather.

Entries were submitted in seven categories including spring bulbs, creative, fruit and vegetable
and children’s.

Jude Judson, of Snells Beach, was the overall winner with Margaret Notter second and Jenny Burton third.

Jude also took home the prize for the most outstanding exhibit overall for her blood lily.
Barbara Bennett, of Snells Beach, won the floral art section.

Mrs Carpenter thanked sponsors for their support, as well as the hard working club members.
