garden club wing-ding
Last week was the Wharton Garden Club Plant and Flower Show. This year it was held at the library in the program room instead of at the Museum. The new director at the museum was not as cooperative as the recently retired director had been. And the library does a plant swap every year so it seemed like a good match and they were very excited about having it there.
Last year we had a silent auction and a plant sale at the same time which was way more work. This year the club decided to do just the plant show with a speaker and partnered with the library's annual plant swap it was just right.
I was on the committee this year so I had to be there early and stay late to help set up on Thursday and take down on Friday. As usual, I just sort of picked the best looking thing I had at the last minute. I ended up taking three things though. I was just going to take the one but then I came home and took two others.
And I won two 3rd place ribbons! One for the maidenhair fern and one for the water plant lizardtail.
This was my third entry.

Here's some of the other entries:
There was also a floral arrangement category and you could only use flowers you grew.
As usual, I came home from the plant swap with far too many little plants to find a place for.
