"Summer on the Move" a Small Standard Flower Show was held at the Issaquah Library, 10 West Sunset Way, Issaquah on June 13, 2012. It was opened to the public from 1:00 to 6:00 PM and free of charge.
Viewed were horticulture entries grown by club members as well as floral designs entered for competition by club members. There were "Dancing Displays" of Perennials and Trees and Shrubs that appeared to be "Sailing in the Wind". The "Summer Fun" of design included competition categories like "Walking on Sunshine", "Strolling in the Garden", "Enjoying Cool Treats", "Spotting Lightning Bugs", and featured entries in a summer activities category of "Basking in the Sunshine" sun visors with floral motifs. Educational Exhibits taught us about noxious and invasive plants as well as motivating our youth to garden.
