Blooms take centrestage in Bluff


AN array of flowers were on show at the recent Bluff Flower Show held at the Senior Citizens Hall in Bluff.

Exhibitor Gaylyn Potter said wild weather had played havoc with blooms at the time of the Burt Munro Challenge; however, she was able to resurrect enough to enter the competition with her sweet peas, begonias and pansies.

She was delighted to win a $10 Nichols voucher when she came third in the cut flowers section of the competition. Photo: Noel Peterson
