Members of the Spade and Trowel Garden Club invite you to attend a flower show on Tuesday, June 6, from 1 to 7 p.m. at Ross Station, 585 North Market Street Extended in Seaford. The show is open to the public, and admission is free. The date falls within National Garden Week, June 4 through 10.
Entitled “The Language of Flowers” — taken from “The Complete Language of Flowers: A Definitive and Illustrated History” by S. Theresa Dietz — the show will feature four classes of floral designs created by members and a colorful array of the finest horticultural specimens from their gardens, all competing for blue ribbons. If weather cooperates, featured classes will include hydrangeas, rhododendron, lilacs and viburnum, plus flowering perennials, ferns, roses and planted containers.
A photography division will highlight members’ skills with a camera, some displayed in color; others in black and white. Educational displays will include information on native perennials, house plants, herbs and succulents — and, of course, membership.
General chairman of the show is Sharon Christopher. Questions may be directed to her at 410-310-5994.
