Upcoming Flower Show

     It is 6:45 am and it has been raining cats & dogs for at least the last hour.  I lay in bed listening to the rain and wondering how this will affect the upcoming flower show scheduled for today and tomorrow.  The Pottstown Area Garden Club is hosting a Standard Flower Show at the Frederick Mennonite Community this weekend.  There is no cost to come and enjoy the displays.  It is free and open to the public.  The hours are today, Fri, May 20 from 3:30 to 6pm and tomorrow, Sat, May 21 from 9am to 2pm.      When I submit horticulture in a flower show I usually harvest the blooms or cuttings the very day of the show.  That way the submission will be at its peak for the competition.  However, it has been raining all week and especially very heavy this morning.  I can't help but wonder if the rain has knocked all the blooms from the flowers and trees.  Is everything so water logged that it will be difficult to find anything for display?  Maybe some of our members went out and took their cutting late yesterday while there was a brief reprieve from the storms.
     I am axious to see what everyone comes up with.  We have to be there early to place our submissions and set up our designs.  I'll let you know what happens and hope to have some photos after the show has commenced.  Stay tuned for ..... the rest of the story.
     Some blooms in my yard yesterday...
