Lakefield Horticultural Society hosted Rose and Spring Flower Show

The Lakefield & District Horticultural Society hosted their Rose and Spring Flower show at the Lakefield Marshland Centre on Tuesday.

The Marshland Centre was filled with many beautiful flowers that were enjoyed by all who attended the early summer flower show.

Even though the Rose was the star of the show many other flowers were also included. All who attended enjoyed flowers such as begonias, carnations, pansies, petunias, phlox, sweet peas, columbines, canterbury bells, and delphiniums.

There were also some decorative competitions with an “Around the world” theme. “It’s a small world”, take a trip through “The Railroad Trilogy”, dream of the waters of “The South Pacific” and end up in an “English Country Garden.” Visiters were impressed to see how these themes were interpreted by the talented designers.

The Lakefield and District Horticultural Society is a non-profit group which raises funds through its annual Antique and Flower show to beautify the Village of Lakefield and to bring speakers to monthly meetings. All regular meetings at the Marshland Centre are free and guests are always welcome.
