May's meeting was well attended when members welcomed Graham Watts from Dereham who, with slides, showed how he transformed a fairly derelict garden into one which is now opened under the National Garden Scheme. During three years he and his wife, with a little help, cleaned out the half acre pond, laid paths and created flower beds and a vegetable patch which now gives colour and form throughout the year. The Club are all looking forward to visiting the garden in July to see it for themselves.
There were some lovely flower arrangements on the competition table - the monthly trophy being won by Heather Doig with Maureen Ashfield and Alison Walker also gaining top marks in their classes. The table show for 'blossom' was won by Alison Walker.
Next month's meeting will be held on Thursday 11 June in Old Buckenham Village Hall starting at 2pm when a workshop will take place. Please bring usual flower arranging items together with a small amount of foliage to include a few small ivy trails, hosta leaves, etc, and a bunch of roses. Also bring some co-ordinating ribbon and some small beads, other items will be provided.
The competition title is 'Carnival' and the trophy will be awarded for the best use of colour. The table show is for 'The first rose of summer'.
Visitors are always welcome and further details can be obtained from Christine on 01953 454528 or Sally on 01953 788712.
