The show was held at the VKH Community Centre Hall on May 11th, 2013. It was a cool, overcast day, 13 degrees Celsius. Thirteen children participated in the show with a total of 95 entries in 24 sections.
New this year were two sections: “Narcissus - paper white” and “Any Other Spring Flower”.
We had no entries in the Iris section; this can be removed next year.
Trophies: “Gisbert Rosenstein Trophy” for “Best Tulip” was won by Lilly Calverley with her yellow tulip.
“Champlain in Bloom Trophy” for “Best Flowering Tree/Shrub” was also won by Lilly Calverley with a flowering Quince.
The judge was Anne Kerr and the pictures for The Review were taken by Louise Sproule.
Prizes were awarded at 1:30 p.m. There were 23 first, 19 second and 14 third prizes distributed totaling $88.50.
Every participant received 3 purple double tulip bulbs to be planted in September.
