John Fenech had no interest in flowers or growing them a little more than a year ago.
That all changed when he came across the Spring Orchid Show at Mildura Central last year.
This year he entered his Sarah Jean “Ice Cascade” and took home first prize in two categories.
“Before last year I had never been interested in flowers,” he said.
“I was in the shopping centre with my wife, Carole, and we walked past the spring show and I thought they were all just so beautiful.
“We bought a couple of orchids and shortly after joined the Sunraysia Orchid Club.”
