THE Darling Buds of May Flower Show, presented by the Hillcrest Floral Art Club, took place at Watercrest Mall from 20 to 22 May 2016. The floral artistry was most impressive, adorning the mall and turning it into a floral fantasy for the visitors.
The show included both amateur and professional flower arrangements. The class entry themes were most exciting, but the favourite of course was the Children’s class “Tea Time” where arrangements were made in tea cups!

Congratulations to the overall class Winners: Class 1: 1st Norma Common, Class 2: Saroj Kisten, Class 3: 1ST Brenda Van Der Merwe, Class 4: Linda Larratt, Class 5: Willie Kokott, Class 6: Yvonne Eijllers, Class 7 ( 7-9 YEARS): Jasmin De Montille, Class 7 (10-12 YEARS): 1ST Caitlin Gerber.

In addition Best on show as won by Yvonne Eijllers and Public Choice by Saroj Kisten.

“As Chairlady of the ‘Darling Buds of May’ Flower Show I would like to thank Elizabeth Roux very much for giving us, Hillcrest Floral Art Club, the opportunity to showcase our love of flowers to the public .

“During the several days of the show, many people came to us and thanked us for the show. They were amazed with the beauty and innovation of the designs which they thoroughly enjoyed!

“One of my highlight was the Children’s classes, the ‘ future Florists’ maybe? All the local Schools were invited to enter the children’s class and it was a joy to see their work.

“The standard of the work was excellent with many Gold ribbons awarded especially in the children’s classes,” said Marieke Ric-Hansen. - Supplied
