'Outside in' talk

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
'Outside In' was the title of July's demonstration ably interpreted by Linda Harman at the Breckland Flower and Garden Club meeting. Her outside containers included an earthenware bowl and long-tom pot, a brightly painted bucket, a piece of wood and an improvised pedestal made from bamboo sticks. Her flowers included soft orange lilies and gerberas, white antirrhinums and pink roses. She spoke of her experiences in USA at the world show (flower arranging) and included tips of how to wire fatsia leaves.
The competition for a miniature arrangement was won by Joy Tunmore (Old Hands) and by Janet Skidmore(New Hands). Joy was also awarded the trophy for most imaginative arrangement. The table show for a vase of sweet peas was won by Shirley Penfold.
The next meeting will be held in Old Buckenham Village Hall at 2pm on Thursday 11 August when Rosemary Ward will talk on ‘Flowers and Ruins in the South of France’. The competition title will be ‘Swirls and Curls’ - to include plant manipulation. The table show will be for three stems of ‘hot colour’ from the garden.
