My first flower show!

This weekend was the Hydrangea Festival and it was so much fun! I helped out with the judges breakfast on Saturday morning.
I entered a daylily in the flower show. The very first flower show that I've ever even been to. And I won First Place! I was so amazed! I can't wait til next year!
Of course, Mr F asked if the scones that I made influenced the judges in any way ;)
I went on the garden tour of several homes around town. There were some amazing gardens! I got lots of cute ideas for my own garden!
On Friday night we went to the Hydrangea Ball and had a great time!

The ball was at Le Jardin Blanc and it was just magical!
We took more pictures than what I have posted, but they came out blurry.

Mr F had to have our picture made beside of the antique Porche. Boys and their toys! He would love to have one of his own! Maybe one day.
That is the dress that I made!  I even made Mr F's tie! And here is a shot of the back of my dress.

I'm looking forward to next year!

Congratulations! You looked fabulous for the ball and I loved the color of both your dress and the daylily!

Congratulations! You must be so excited about your first place ribbon. I would love to go to a flower show like that. Our garden club doesn't have one. Maybe I will have to suggest it!

You did say your love to play in the garden so this is some accomplishment. Congrats to you for winning 1st place. Love the dress you made for the Ball but those shoes are like works of Art. I would want to wear them every day, around the house in my PJs to the grocery store ect. Not sure I could take them off. I don't even think I could put them into the closet but rather leave them by my bed so that I could see them every day:-) I adore shoes!
