Just 'One Day'

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
Old Buckenham Village Hall was packed with members and visitors who all appreciated Lee Berrill's demonstration entitled 'One Day'. Travelling from Northampton Lee explained the inspiration behind each of his designs – “I bought this large pot because I knew one day it would come in useful; one day I shall use those unusual anthuriums in an arrangement”, etc. Amongst his designs he depicted a traditional summer display which included a wide variety of pink flowers, yellow and orange lilies and gerberas tumbling from a large urn placed on its side and a modern design featuring foliage and anthuriuims placed around a bamboo container.
In the flower arranging competition the winner of the old hands class for an 'Special occasion arrangement' was Shirley Penfold and the trophy for best use of colour was presented to Margaret Smith.
In table show competition for 'the first rose of Summer', Shirley Penfold was first, second was Sylvia Briggs and third Ann Dent.
The next meeting will be on Thursday 8 July and will be a Summer Garden Lunch to be held at the home of Joy Tunmore, Roseville, Mile Road, Carleton Rode – 12 noon for 12.30pm (cost to members £5). The competitions will be for a buttonhole (to be worn) and three sweet peas. A trophy will be awarded for the most imaginative entry. There will also be a tombola, a plant stall and a plant identification quiz.
