The photos are captioned, but I'll reiterate in case cyberspace screws things
The Lavender iris design with a stuffed elephant was designed by Ruth Gifford
of Luzerne. She wasn't going to make ANY designs this year (for various reasons
which included feeling a lack of inspiration.) I'm SO glad she did! She won
Artistic Sweepstakes with the most blue ribbons in the Artistic Division!
The design with 'Thornbird' and a pony by it was designed by Dolores Meinzinger
of Lachine. She always does very well in the artistic division, again winning the
Best Design of Show.
Finally, People's Choice Design was voted on by the public attending our show.
The award goes to Kim Kocher of Hale with his arrangement/design in a
hand-blown colored glass vase.
