Flower fans in Minnesota will be treated to some beautiful autumnal blossoms this month at the First District Fall Festival and Flower Show.
The event is being hosted by the Minnesota State Horticultural Society in Spring Valley, Minnesota. A variety of fall plants, including prairie plants, flowers that boast autumnal colors, and dried flowers will be on display, according to the Spring Valley Tribune.
Members of the garden club will also be giving demonstrations on how to make a scarecrow and using ditch plants to make dried arrangements. There will also be an informative session entitled "Herbal Vinegars."
Those competing in the competition will be allowed to adorn their floral arrangements with knickknacks and mats, but cannot use any artificial flowers. Competitors may enter their bouquets in a variety of seasonal categories, such as Harvest Time, Golden Sunset, The Small of Fall, Autumn Splendor or the Table of Plenty.
A festive fall bouquet is an excellent way to welcome in the new season. If you'd like to decorate your home with some fall flowers, the University of Vermont recommends gladioli, asters, chrysanthemums and everlastings.
