Enter the floral exhibition – May 24 – 25

The Garden Club of Grand Cayman is inviting the public to participate in a special Horticultural and Floral Exhibition in May.

Three floral exhibits

Top left: Dried, twisted vine, Bismarckia inflorescence and snake plant/mother-in-law’s tongue (Sansevieria).
Top right: Dried and painted pink poui seed pods (Tabebuia rosea) and Spanish elm tree flowers (Cordia gerascanthus).
Bottom: Dried and painted bamboo sticks and coconut twists with Hong Kong orchid flowers (Bauhinia blakeana).

The event is being held instead of the club’s traditional flower show and will take place at Jasmine (formerly Cayman HospiceCare), West Bay Road.

The exhibition categories are designs, amateur photography, horticulture, and children’s designs, with local judges selecting the best of each.

The theme for the floral designs is “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” and entries must be made of natural materials found in the Cayman Islands.

The photographs should depict “Visions of Cayman” and must be of a local scene, while the horticulture theme is “Beauty of Cayman”, which can include plants, trees, shrubs, cut flowers and other plant materials.

The children’s design category is open to all schools and has the theme “Recycling.” The designs should be made from natural materials, including some recycled elements but no plastics.

Admission to the exhibition is free and refreshments will be served at the event.

There will be prizes for the winners, plus all participants will be given a raffle ticket to be drawn at the end of the event. The exhibition opens at 4 p.m. on Friday, May 24 and runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 25. All exhibits must be in place by 10 a.m. on May 24.
