Saturday 6 October was the last Central Region show for the 2012 season .
Held in the Palmerston North Lutheran Church Hall, a large gathering of
exhibitors and partners staged about 350 stems in a colourful display .
The very early season meant a lot of the blooms had spent a week or so
in the fridges but generally flower condition was excellent with strong
competition in most classes and grades .
A continuous supply of tea , coffee and food ( a big lunch ) , with plenty of
discussion of the big Dunedin Convention Show ensured an enjoyable day for all .
