2023 June Club Blue Ribbon Winner again!
June 23-25, 2023 Newport Flower Show Club Competitions Class.
Twelve entries were allowed , four of which were primarily blue and four were white plants in a Chinese vase. The Show theme was "the Grand Tour". The inspiration for the Chinese vase for the Preservation Society Tea House was Shan-Shai lanscape painting, Shan meaning "mountain" and Shau"\meaning "river". A central potato bush as a standard tree, represents the mountain and blue and silver plants represent the river.
The committee was composed of Nancy Oliveira, Karen Saucier, Suzan Ballard, Jane Thomas and Ann Gizzi (not pictured)
