Spring is in the air at flower show

Photographs by Hugh Boag

Spring was definitely in the air last Saturday in Brodick Hall.

The dreadful winter weather may have hit the number of entries but there was still a marvellous display at the Arran Horticultural Society spring flower and bulb show.

The fine selection of flowers and plants was augmented by some excellent entries in the children’s section, which is well supported by the primary schools around the island, with Shiskine this year coming out on top.

The top gardener of the day was Janice Murray, who lifted both the Royal Bank of Scotland Trophy for the best exhibit in show and the R W McKelvie Cup.

At the prizegiving chairman John Sillars thanked all the entries and gave special mention to the support from the primary schools which he said helped make the show. He also encouraged more children to enter the summer show which this year will be on Wednesday August 8.
