It’s a yearly tradition befitting the most royal of flowers.

A Rose and Lily show will be held tomorrow (Thursday) at the Credit Union Community Room, hosted by the Weyburn  Horticultural Society.

The event will run from 1 to 4 p.m.

“They can see a beautiful, wide variety of roses and perennials and lilies, and a few floral arrangements will be part of it as well,” said Ilene Johnson of the Weyburn Horticultural Society. “It’s really amazing what people can grow in this area.”

Entries will be accepted until 11 a.m.

“If you get our show book, it will describe what we have, what the section and class number and everything are, and how to display it, whether you’re displaying a single rose or a splay, it gives the parameters so that everybody’s on an even playing field,” she said.

Membership to the Horticultural Society is not required to be part of the show.

“Anybody can come in and compete, whether you’re a member or not, you can bring in an entry,” she explained. “You can get a hold of any of our members to locate a book in order to display and get tags. So, if you wanted to display anything, you’re welcome to do it without being a member.”
