SLIDESHOW: Garden Club's talent blooms with spring show

The Enumclaw Garden Club served up its own version March 30 with its small-standard flower show at the Enumclaw Public Library.

The event, the first the club has hosted in years, drew 16 design entries, four craft entries and 76 from horticulture.

Garden Club President Tory Bennett said in addition to providing the club with great exposure, also gives the group's 77 members experience for bigger district shows.

The Chinook District provided judges Carol Bayer, Betty Burkhart and Marion Noncaroll.

Marie Angman, who has been with the Enumclaw Garden Club for 43 years, was a two-time winner, taking first in horticultural division in the Green With Envy section, needled or scaled ornamental evergreen, with an Atlas cedar offering and the Folly Foliage, broadleaf evergreen, category for her holly.

Bennet was a top finisher in Delirious, flowering plant division, with a tulip and Diane Franchini captured Dream Dizziness, flowering tree and shrub, honor.

Bennett and Franchini were double winners in the design portion of the competition as well.

Bennett won the Artistic Abandon, Predominately Green, category and the Fantastic Frenzy, all fresh, category. She also took home the Design Excellence honor.

Franchini won the Monstrous Madness, Creative Design, section and the Wondrous Wildness, Predominately Yellow, arrangement category.
