Breckland Flower and Garden Club
October's meeting was well attended to watch Alison Cushing's demonstration 'Seasonal'. Her love of roses showed through her designs as she blended them with shamrock chrysanthemums, gerberas, chinese lanterns, veronica and sunflowers. Most of her arrangements were modern although she closed the afternoon with a traditional triangle on a lovely raised container.
The competition for 'Autumn in a copper container - was won by Janet Skidmore (New Hands) and by Shirley Penfold (Old Hands) who also won the trophy for best exhibit.
The table show competition for three stems of autumn colour from the garden was also won by Shirley Penfold with some nerines.
The November meeting will take place at Old Buckenham Village Hall on Thursday 11 November at 2pm when Lisa Howard will demonstrate 'Enchanted Christmas' The competition title will be ‘Enchantment’ and the table show is for dried or preserved plant material.
Don't forget the following meeting will be on Thursday 9 December when there will be a workshop and afternoon tea (please bring a plate). The meeting will commence earlier at 1.30pm. More details will be available at the November meeting.
