Mason County Garden Club Flower Show 2021

  I'm just going to show you some of my favorite plants and displays from the 2021 Mason County Garden Club Flower Show. Some of them took blue ribbons and some did not. This post is more about me liking them than their techinical merit.

This is a small show, because we are a small town, but a lot of effort goes into this. Mason County Garden Club

And I liked this one a lot too. It's called "Solar Wind." Remember, the theme is The Solar System. One thing I think is so striking about it is that the yellow of the lilies is a really, really close tone match to the goldenrod. I find this remarkable. lilies and goldenrod

In other news: It was a good day at the vendor event in Holland, and I did really well, but I am beat. I think I'll be going to bed early.
