June ShowbenchSpring flowers birds

Jennifer Zuk is our guest judge for the June Showbench!

We have two new sections on the showbench for June. There is an opportunity to practice for the Fall Harvest Fair as section 29 is a special entry for a plate of three muffins. The recipe for the entry with the highest points will be in the next newsletter. The entries will be judged as they would for the Fall Harvest Fair.
Section 28 is a garden sampler. A garden sampler is an informal vase of flowers +/- foliage suitable for an all-round home display. All plant material must be from the member’s garden. The vase can be any container that is taller than its width. This is an excellent chance for you to combine cut flowers and foliage from your garden and create a lovely relaxed display without the hassles that can come with floral design. Let your imagination go!
