The Fort Frances Horticultural Society had a brilliant display of bouquets at the Clover Valley Farmers’ Market here on Saturday.
They were creations by members of the horticultural society made of blooms and foliage grown in their own gardens.
It was a delightful blend of creativity and the natural beauty of the flowers.
The stand was run by Astrid Sobkowicz, Vivian O’Donnell, and Evelyn Goldamer.
At the close of the market, Helen Crook drew three names (Carole Bruyere, Rochelle Kennett, and Diane Williamson), who all received elegantly-designed arrangements created by Astrid.
All leftover flowers were taken to Rainycrest for the enjoyment of the residents there.
Funds raised Saturday will support our continuing efforts to beautify the community.
Our next meeting is scheduled for this coming Monday (July 28) at 7 p.m. at the old CN station on Fourth Street West.
All are welcome to attend as we plan our upcoming flower show, and discuss how to display and prepare entries as directed by our judge, Donna Wasykowski.
