Flower and gardening enthusiasts from around the country converged on Douglas County for the annual Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival on Saturday. Van loads of people rode around Douglasville to tour nationally recognized private gardens. The courthouse was filled with people looking at plants entered in the flower show, table designs and artistic crafts. At the Cultural Arts Center, kids painted two flower pots and planted colorful impatiens in each pot — one for themselves and the other for a charity. There were also activities at the Old Courthouse, Woodie Fite Senior Center and Douglas County Health Department. The Hydrangea Festival continues Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at all five locations.
