Flower power still blooming

CELEBRATING a golden anniversary is a colourful affair, and the Grafton District Orchid Society has mastered that feat with sheer perfection.

Transforming a section of Grafton Shoppingworld into a dazzling sea of colour with their 50th annual spring show, the society continues to bloom half a century after being formed.

"The society has a proud history and having so many varieties of orchids on display this week is a nice way of recognising that," said president Mike Hall.

"Orchids are a very delicate flower which come in many different colours and scents. A lot of people have been continually looking over the display and our spring show is a very well-attended event."

Almost 200 specimens have entered the spring show, with judging taking place yesterday morning. Owners of the winning plants will be presented with their awards at a presentation on Saturday.

The Grafton District Orchid Society's spring show will remain on display until September 24.
