One of the most scenic parts of the Dogwood Festival was on display Thursday. The Dogwood Garden Club hosted a flower show Thursday afternoon at the Virginia Department of Forestry building in Charlottesville.
Visitors got a chance to see flowers of all types. They even had a chance to take some classes.
For members of the club, the show was also a contest with strict rules.
"Everything in our culture back here has to be grown by members of our club, no exception. It can't be your grandmother's, it can't be your next-door neighbor's,” said Janice Doyle of the Dogwood Garden Club.
This is the second year the club has participated in the festival. Members say they wanted to come back after more than 200 people visited the show in 2013.
