2009 Flower Show

The Milady Garden Club is hosting its 59th Annual Standard Flower Show this weekend. That's no typo; the club has been hosting the show for more than half a century. The free (!) public event is from 3-5 p.m. Sat, April 18 and 1-4 p.m. Sun, April 19 at the Beaumont Botanical Garden Center at Tyrrell Park.
The event is held in conjunction with the Neches River Festival.

If you've never been to a flower show, you've missed out. Think of the most unique, striking, creative floral arrangement you've even seen, then imagine a room full of them. Designs are based on the theme, "Dancing Flowers," which has the categories modern dance, waltzing, cha-cha, all that jazz, put your little foot (miniature) and the two-step (table desings for two), acoording to show chairman Elizabeth Gibbs.

Look for horticulture specimens of annuals, perennials, roses, bulbs, trees and shrubs, vines, cut foliage, herbs, flowering plants and foliage plants, succulents, bromeliads, hanging containers, oversized plants for floor display, miniature designs, designs on pedestals, table designs and trays - all as defined by National Garden Clubs handbook for flower show judges. Judges will give Awards of Merit and ribbons, plus special awards including the Neches River Festival Special Award Design trophies.
