The 2017 Southeast Regional Show was held in Nashville, TN at Cheekwood Botanical Garden March 25-26. There were 25 exhibitors and 543 stems. It was a very good show, especially considering the thunderstorms, tornadoes, plus the freezing temperatures and 2″ of snow the couple of weeks before the show.

Congratulations to all the winners as well as many thanks to exhibitors who brought and worked to save their flowers for the show!

Janet Loyd won the Silver Ribbon for the most blue ribbons in the show with 18 blues.

Here are the single bloom and 3 stems winners.  I’ll post some collection photos later.
