SPRING BLOOMS ON SHOW
The arrival of spring was evident at this year’s Douglas Orchid Society’s Spring Show last Saturday with an array of spectacular blooms in a wide range of colour and variety. More than 200 people visited the display which featured many genera of orchids and a plant sale of both orchids and tropical exotic plants. “We are always looking for new members,” Mr Ken Brown, president of the society said. The society meets every second Sunday of each month at various members’ homes where blooms are discussed and tips and techniques are shared. Pictured: Keith Halfpapp and Joan Gray at the show.
