Balls ‘growing’


Share post:

THE SMILES ON the faces of the people behind the Barbados Horticultural Society were as bright as the flowers at Balls Plantation yesterday.

And the woman behind the annual flower and garden show said it had come a long way since its inception.

Jennifer Weetch, the society’s first vice-president and organiser of the show, said: “It has grown. I said to someone it has come a long way because it’s like the first event for the winter season and it’s growing.”

Horticultural Society president Orson Daisley, speaking as the curtain came down on the two-day event, said: “I am very pleased with the outcome. The crowd was good. A lot of people came out and the weather was perfect and they were enjoying the whole scenery, especially the Gully Adventure.” (HLE)
