Flowery childhood memories

Flower and Garden Club

Childhood memories were stirred when Judy Barham demonstrated at February's meeting of the Breckland Flower and Garden Club in Old Buckenham village hall. Contrary Mary's garden with silver bells and cockle shells, nutmegs and pears growing in the nut tree. Pink lilies and carnations rocked the baby to sleep in a wicker cradle and Incy Wincy Spider climbed over tulips and chrysanthemums. Purple tulips and orange roses were the choice for Old Mother Hubbard and her many children. Cinderella was the final arrangement - a wonderful pink and white display with two placements containing lilies, roses and lisianthus.
The competition was for a depiction of a child's book (with title card). The New Hands class was won by Susan Thurlow, the Old Hands was won by Shirley Penfold (who also received the trophy for best exhibit) joint second were Sylvia Briggs and Ursula Jackson with Pat Wells third.
The table show winner was Ann Dent for her house plant. Second was Sally Westrup and Sylvia Briggs was third.
The March meeting will be the Annual General Meeting, to be followed by a talk and slides from Thorncroft Nurseries (clematis). The competition title is 'Spring has sprung - a petite arrangement (25cm height, width and depth)'.The table show is for a pot of spring bulbs.
So come along to Old Buckenham Village Hall on Thursday 10 March for a 2pm start. Visitors are always welcome. For further details contact Sally on 788712 or Pat on 457305.
