The sun shone on the annual County Garden Show at the Crystal Palace on the weekend.
Torrential rain in the days ahead of the show played some havoc with the flowers in competition but judge Mary Lochart was pleased with what she saw.
Best-in-Show-Youth-Kayla-Hepburn“The weather has made things a bit slower and the rain and wind we had made it difficult for the competitors as it tends to whip things around,” she said.
However, she was pleased to award the Best of Show to a mixed bouquet arrangement by Sandra Dowds.
“There are five different varieties in this entry,” Lochart noted. “Two of each kind and it is beautiful. It is the best in show.”

Kayla Hepburn won the District 3 Special Best in Show Youth Award for design. Her work was on display in the Blue Bird Building with other entries from the 4H Flower Club, out of Sophiasburgh.
Maggie-Lindsay-places-ribbons4H Member Maggie Lindsay was in charge of placing the winning ribbons.
