This past weekend, September 27 and 28, I participated in my first floral design competition at The Rhoads Garden, which was part of their 75th anniversary celebrations. They had two categories, harvest and romantic, both of which I entered. All the flowers, tools, and containers were provided by Rhoads, and I and many other ladies enjoyed making our arrangements on Friday evening. There were awards handed out by the Rhoads staff, and a people’s choice in each category. My entries are below. Closer views can be seen here.
