Vase theme ‘Basketry and Birds’

Daffodil1

SATURDAY 17TH SEPTEMBER – 10:30AM TO 4:00PM
SUNDAY 18TH SEPTEMBER – 12:00PM TO 4:00PM

All Saints Anglican Church is proud to be hosting its sixth annual Daffodil Show. Over its short life the show has gained an enviable reputation with professional growers and the local community alike. The flowers are fabulous and entry is free. The weekend of 17 & 18 September will see All Saints Church and Hall bedecked in the glorious colours of daffodils. Come and learn about growing, breeding and showing daffodils, visit the church and see for yourself the fascinating process of restoring historic All Saints Church.

Family entertainment abounds: face painting, Zoodoo Petting Zoo, kids’ craft, a garden market, The Jesse Tree (All Saints Op Shop), BBQ, and morning & afternoon tea with homemade fare. There will also be live music on the grass: Ethereal (Celtic Harps) and the Hobart Old Time String Band. Lots to see, do and eat!

The Daffodil Show includes Community Classes for young and old ranging from a simple arrangement of garden flowers, to photography, original artwork and colouring-in. Budding artists of all ages are encouraged to either colour-in an original line drawing by Rod Barwick or create their own work. There are two new classes at this year’s show – Weeds and Herbs. On Sunday afternoon there will be a special ‘Blessing of the Pets’ service.

Prizes will be awarded for winning entries in all Community and Standard classes. Exhibitors are encouraged to use their imagination with the vase theme for this year’s show: Basketry and Birds.

So dust off your vases, riffle through the cupboards for that fabulous basket you just haven’t been able to part company with, pick some flowers from your garden and arrange them at the show. Above all, be prepared to enjoy yourselves!

Not only will you be part of a wonderful community event but know that all proceeds go towards development of the All Saints Garden, a quiet oasis in the heart of South Hobart.
