ROCKSPRINGS — Inspired by the theme “ A Decade of Disney,” Junior flora designers and gardeners displayed their entries alongside the adult participants during the 2018 Flower Show at the Meigs County Fair.

Just as the adults were challenged to express their artistic talent by interpreting selected movies with floral designs, so were the Juniors. Their talents were apparent with their selection of material and expertise in design.

The Juniors also presented plant and flower entries, and dish and fairy gardens in the horticultural classes.

Along with 5 Adult Garden Clubs, Meigs County boasts a junior garden club known as Sprouts, who had a high level of participation in the show.
