And here’s info from Mary Kay Koch of Westchester Parks and Rec about a flower show at Lasdon Park.
“Diamonds may be a girlÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s best friend, but next weekend, October 12 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 14, girlÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s and guys can both enjoy some natural Ã¢â‚¬Å“gemsÃ¢â‚¬? at a Petite Standard Flower Show called Ã¢â‚¬Å“Gem StonesÃ¢â‚¬? presented by the New Horizons Garden Club at Lasdon Park and Arboretum in Somers.
“The show features miniature and dwarf horticulture and tiny floral designs from 4 to 8 inches tall. The horticultural exhibit categories are based on stones of all types and the design themes reflect the good taste and high price-tags of TiffanyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s, Faberge and George Jensen.
“But donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t worry, you can afford these gems Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the show is free and open to all.
“Hours are Friday, 2 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission and parking are free. Lasdon Park is on Route 35 in Somers and may be reached via I-684 (Exit 6) or the Taconic Parkway (Exit Route 35/202).
