Autumnal flowers

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
In-house entertainment was provided by four committee members at September's meeting who demonstrated 'Autumn Medley'. Mellissa's all-round arrangement with a candle featured autumn fruit, flowers and foliage gleaned from her garden and hedgerows, Sally's formal parallel design included golden astilbes, sunflowers, dahlias and lilies. Joy and Christine's designs - one in a giant martini glass - for an autumn wedding contained a lovely mix of foliage, gerberas, roses and spun sisal together with two hand-ties placed in sisal frames and presented in fancy boxes.
The competition table was very colourful with basket arrangements of 'Garden Harvest' . The ‘Old Hands’ class was won by Ursula Jackson together with the monthly cup and Janet Skidmore won the ‘New Hands’ class. Shirley Penfold's sedum won the table show.
The next meeting will take place on Thursday 13 October at Old Buckenham Village Hall starting at 2pm when Ben Potterton (of Blacksmith Nursery, Dickleburgh) will be talking on plants and flowers. The competition will be for an arrangement 'Inspired by a Fan' and the table show asks for three stems of from the garden.
