Conversation also included Becky's new digs on Mud Hen Lake, baby bunnies in Pam's zinnia planter, and who will be entering the county fair this year. Look for entries in the fair from Becky and Linnea, Rhonda and Sandy! Sunday afternoon is a great time to peruse the entries and prize awards.
In our garden club competitions, first prizes were awarded for best container garden to Sandy Hinrichs, and best arrangement of cut flowers to Georgianne Kleiss. Congratulations to Sandy and Georgianne. Second place was not awarded in the container garden category as has been the tradition as there were only three entries in that category but five entries in the cut flowers category. In the cut flowers category we hoped to give a second prize but there was a three-way tie for second place. The prize for second place will be equally divided between the two first place winners by decision of the quorum present at the event.
We were a group of 11 until Lisa's husband, Charlie, showed up at the perfect time to grab a quick bite to eat, take a group photo, then ferry some of us on a cruise of the lake. A big "Thank You" to Charlie Slater!
