'In the mood' in Old Buckenham

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
Brenda Tubb demonstrated to a full house at the November meeting of the Breckland Flower and Garden Club in Old Buckenham village hall. Using some new and unusual containers - wicker stands, a candelabra, a cone covered bowl - her designs included new varieties of roses and carnations. With the addition of coloured baubles and twinkling lights she certainly put everyone 'In the Mood' for Christmas.
The competition table was very colourful with ‘welcome rings’. Christine Hewson came first in the Old Hands class and was also awarded the monthly cup. Alison Walker gained most points in the New Hands class as well as winning the table show with her dried and preserved plant material.
Next month’s meeting on Thursday 12 December is a workshop. Please bring a small amount of foliage, about a metre of ribbon and a few decorative items - small cones, small baubles, etc. Don't forget a rubbish bag, scissors and secateurs. Members are also asked to bring a few cakes or nibbles for afternoon tea. There will also be a Christmas bring and buy stall.
The competition title is 'Crackers' – just use your imagination. The table show is for three stems of seasonal foliage.
Visitors always welcome, further details from Sally on 01953 788712
