Members of the Greenleaf Garden Club of Milford ushered in spring with their visit to the Boston Flower and Garden Show in March. This year's show theme was A Burst of Color: Celebrating the Container Garden. Members studied displays for ideas for their own gardens and for the Club's downtown Milford plantings.

Many unusual and new plant varieties were displayed. Nurseries and garden centers created displays incorporating unusual containers and showed innovative ways of placing them in the garden. Many used containers, which were not originally designed as planters, such as a gramophone filled with flowers in one of the gardens.

Five members entered designs: three members in design Division 1 "With Flying Color" and two members in design Division 2 "Green Spaces". Anne Sarkisian won second place with her underwater design. Michelle Creamer, June Donnelly, Beverly Huckins and Elaine McNanna won honorable mentions for their designs. All five designers enjoyed the experience of participating in a major flower show. The challenge in creating an artistic interpretation of the various themes and the pleasure of networking with top designers from across the state highlighted the event. They look forward to participating in next year's show.

Karen O'Brien, Greenleaf Garden Club member and President of the Herb Society, created a window filled with Herbs for the Horticulture Division. The annual Horticulture Competition featured exhibits of quality plants at their peak of perfection and encouraged members to try growing them at home.

New members are always welcome! If you wish to join the Greenleaf Garden Club, please contact Jean DeLuzio at 508-473-7790.

The Greenleaf Garden Club is a member of the National Garden Clubs, Inc. and the Garden Club Federation of MA, Inc.
