Even though there were some changes made to the annul Woman’s Club Iris Show to allow for mother nature, entries were still primarily iris.
Organizers are never sure if the iris will bloom on time for the show so this year there were no categories and gardeners were encouraged to bring arrangements of any springtime blooms. Coordinator Connie Baker said the iris were outstanding this year. There were 131 entries from 29 people. 56 blue ribbons were awarded, 57 red and 18 white. The Peoples Choice award was presented to Angie Davison of Mt. Pleasant, Best of Show went to Bob Brown of Mediapolis and the mother daughter team of Shirley White and Addison McGarity of Burlington showed the Best Arrangement.
