We held our 2015 Rose Show at the Temecula Assistance League meeting room on Saturday, April 25. Despite a cool and sometimes wet and windy day, attendance was good.
The theme this year was "Maypole" which featured an eight foot decorated maypole in the center of the room, topped with a floral display. Radiating from the pole were six tables, each having a different colored covering where our exhibitors' roses were displayed according to color. The colors were red (rose), orange (peach), yellow, lavender, white and pink, and included the Hybrid Tea and Grandiflora entries.
Surrounding this central theme area were four round tables which held the entries for breakfast trays, roses in bowls, mini and minifloras, and floribundas.
Along the outer walls were the displays of photography, table settings, standard and mini arrangements and blooming art, as well as a welcome table, refreshment table and an information table. Outside were the registration area, plant sale tables , and Master Gardener booth.
The six center tables and the two round tables holding the minis, minifloras and floribundas, and the rose themed photography displays were judged by our own judges, while the perimeter displays were voted on by the public, giving them the opportunity to participate in the show.
Activities included a raffle of six lovely gift baskets which raised over $200 and the plant sale, which brought in almost the same amount. Refreshments in the form of cookies and lemonade were available for the public, and a donation jar added a bit more revenue.
At 3:00 p.m. the winners of the raffle, the judging and the voting were announced and an awards ceremony was held. Congratulations to each of the recipients. The award winners were:
Best in Class, TVRS Judging
Best in Class, Public Voting
Best in Show, Public Voting:
The Rose Show is a very important opportunity for us to share our love of roses with the community. The Rose Show committee wishes to thank all of the TVRS members and friends who volunteered to make this show a success. We especially want to thank those who donated items for the raffle, snacks, plant sale and awards. Hopefully next year's show will be even better than this one!
