A Flower Show In Monroe

I recently attended a Garden Club of America Flower Show presented by the Monroe Garden Study League in Monroe, Louisiana. the show was staged at the Biedenharn Museum and Gardens.  It was my first visit to this beautiful property and I am so glad that I made the short trip to Monroe.

The gardens are gorgeous…

      Ah, you are sweet to say so! The show was gorgeous and the botanical arts were amazing. All were done by the members of Monroe’s club too. They have mastered the art I think!
