Senior center director Angie Barkmeier said there was a lot of artistic talent put into the arrangements.

“We have a lot of people in the community with the talent of not only growing the flowers but arranging them in beautiful arrangements,” Barkmeier said.

Barkmeier said interest in the flower show seems to grow each year.

“I was a little worried that all the stormy weather we have had would hurt the show,” she said. “Much to my surprise, there was a good variety of flowers used in the arrangements for display.”

The Senior Center’s annual flower show is scheduled each June for people of all ages who would like to enter.
