Breckland Flower and Garden Club

This was entertainment

At the Club’s September meeting, demonstrator Jacquie Aldous gave an interesting and amusing talk as she interpreted her title ‘That's Entertainment'. Her first design depicted Eric and Ernie's 'Bring me sunshine' a fresh parallel design finished off with bright yellow sunflowers. Being a fan of musicals, her next arrangement ‘Love changes everything’ included a red and white eustoma called ‘Hot Lips’ and this was followed by a contemporary black and white design which reminded her of Barnum. Joseph's technicolour dreamcoat came next which contained a riot of colour in a copper container together with copper-coloured poppy seed heads. Tom Daley then took the stage in the form of tall lilies surrounded by a gentle splash of blue delphiniums and white alstromerias. Jacquie's finale was inspired by the programme cover from Phantom of the Opera which contained red, white and gold flowers in a golden urn complimented with a white mask.
In the monthly competitions the New Hands class was won by Alison Vivian and Old Hands class by Sylvia Briggs who also won the monthly trophy and the table show with her sunflower, onion and apple.
Next month Barry Gayton will be giving a talk together with a slide show. The meeting will be in Old Buckenham Village Hall starting at 2pm on Thursday 11 October. The competition title is 'Nature’s Colour' and the table show will be for a photo of autumn colour.
Visitors are always welcome.
