Spring blooms set to blossom at annual flower show

GREEN thumbs of all kinds are invited to exhibit their beautiful flowers and plants at the Twin Towns and District Garden Club's 25th Annual Flower and Garden Show this weekend.

With more than 400 exhibits on display, the annual flower and garden show is shaping up to be a blooming success from 8.30am-2pm on Saturday, September 29 at the Tweed Shire Civic Centre.

"For me, the annual flower and garden show always gives me inspiration and the hope that one day I will be able to produce floral art like some of which will be on display," Twin Towns and District Garden Club member Gwen Barnes said of the event.

"It just takes your breath away.

"It's also a great opportunity for the community to come along and enjoy the creativity and skill on display and to see some of the finest floral art, potted plants, cut flowers and garden photography and also pick up a bargain from the trading table."
