Yesterday I went to the second flower show I’ve been asked to judge this summer. This show was much smaller than the Tri-Cities Garden Club’s show in July, but I forgot to take my camera that day so had no photos to post. Before we started all the judges were invited to Jamesport Brewery in Ludington where we had lunch. Before we started another judge led me into the antique store next door and I bought two vintage brooches. What fun. After lunch and much catching up (most judges know each other), we went to the Community Church to do our job.

The Horticulture was a little weak, but they had some good specimen. The biggest problem is exhibitors do not use the complete botanical nomenclature on the entry card.
