2023 Rumsey 78th Annual Garden Show Aug 30, 2023

Rumsey 78th Annual Garden Show August 30, 2023

It is always an early morning on the day of Rumsey Garden show with exhibits allowed from 8 am to 10:30. Many years ago The Alberta Dahlia and Glad Society committed to judging the dahlias and glads so many of us bring glads and dahlias to the show and stay all day for the program and awards.   

Terri-Lynn Dodd is a director of the show and brings a lot of dahlias.  She and Ron Dodd can grow the most amazing dahlias on their local farm and she is a director of the club as well.   As such they won the most awards for dahlias including the King of the Show (Tsuki Yori No Shisha) a beautiful laciniated white giant. Lorne & Marilyn brought a lot of glads (and dahlias) and they won the aggregate total for glads including the best spike of the show (Purple Flora).  Other entries from our club were John Henderson, Debbie Hatt, Mike Walliser and Lorne & Marilyn McArthur.  It is a busy time of year for farmers, and just busy for a lot of people in general but we hope that more people will start to submit entries.

Although the total entries overall have been declining over the past few years it is still a wonderful show.
