Bloom­ing mar­vel­lous

Kaikoura Star - - FRONT PAGE -

Mavis Jones was the bloom on the rose on Satur­day as the life and found­ing mem­ber of the Kaik­oura Gar­den Club claimed the lion’s share at the an­nual Rose Show. And it was her birth­day. Dorothy Sed­don presided over the pre­sen­ta­tion of an ar­ray of his­toric cups and tro­phies, bear­ing the names of il­lus­tri­ous gar­den­ers and afi­ciona­dos of blooms past.

Jones said she had been a bit wor­ried about ev­ery­one else’s gar­dens after the strong winds the town had ex­pe­ri­enced in the last few weeks.

‘‘My gar­den was fine though. It was too late for some of the blooms; they were a bit past their best.

‘‘ It’s been a good sea­son, though per­haps not as good as last year,’’ she said. Rose Show awards win­ners: Dor­rie Mackle Vase: For dis­play­ing Premier Bloom. Pre­sented with the Mar­jorie Young Cup and Rib­bon : For Premier Bloom – Mavis Jones
