Rose to hon­our Daniel a win­ner

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS - –ERICA MURREE

VIS­I­TORS to the Biggen­den Apex Rose Fes­ti­val’s Rose and Flower Show held in the QCWA rooms were hit with a blast of per­fume as they en­tered through the doors.

Cham­pion rose was ex­hib­ited by Michelle Kin­bacher with a red rose named in hon­our of Daniel Mor­combe.

Michelle said she bought it two years ago.

“I’ve never seen one like it,” she said. “They are just so healthy.” Mrs Kin­bacher said dur­ing the week one branch had been flat­tened by rain and was ly­ing on the ground.

“I cut off all the blooms and hoped for the best,” she said. The rest is his­tory. Judge Chris Collins of Her­vey Bay was im­pressed with the num­bers for such a small town.

“The qual­ity was up there with the big­ger places,” he said.

“Just like ev­ery­where else the roses have been af­fected by the weather, es­pe­cially mildew.”

Mr Collins said to find the cham­pion it came down to blem­ishes.

“The red rose had a per­fect for­ma­tion,” he said.

Stew­ards Lyn Brook and Mia Forster were ex­cited with the 105 en­tries with 41 com­ing from the Biggen­den Hos­pi­tal res­i­dents.

“The dis­play of roses and flow­ers was bet­ter than the an­nual show,” the stew­ards said. Flow­ers re­sults Ger­beras, large, hy­brid, sin­gle – all won by Lyn Brook 1 and 2. Ger­bera, dou­ble: Lyn Holmes 1, Michelle Kin­bacher 2.
