2015 Spring Flower Show and Social Tea

The Spring Flower Show and Social Tea went without a hitch in spite of it being on the long weekend with 99 entries (10 more than last year) and 14 exhibitors (2 more than last year).
Judging started promptly at 11 a.m. and the Social Tea was served at 12 noon.
Thank you to Mona Rea for taking all the pictures.
