Beautiful art on exhibition
IMAGES of secateurs drawn ready to stealthily sabotage an opponent’s plants in an instant come to mind when one thinks of floral competitions at small country shows.
However, Killarney Show floral art steward Aileen Hammond insists that is absolutely not the case with the Queensland Country Women’s Association Killarney Floral Art Group.
“We are just a group of ladies who meet each month ... we are a very friendly group,” she said.
“I wouldn’t call what we have rivalry, we are very helpful for each other when we set up.
“We like flowers but are not into full-blown competition.”
This year there will be four “alcoves”, which are large-scale displays on a particular theme and about 40 other entries into the floral art section at the Killarney Show.
The section will be judged by about 10.30am today at the Killarney Show Pavilion.
