Summer is coming

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
Members and visitors enjoyed the 'Flower Girls' demonstration at April's meeting entitled “Here comes summer”. Sheila Bullen and Joy Tumore took a 'holiday in Scotland' which reminded everyone of the pink and purple hues of heather whilst 'the picnic' - in a hamper - included bright sunny gerberas. Designs for a church wedding included candles, pink lilies, carnations and green chrysanthemums. Herbaceous borders were interpreted by parallel arrangements and white blooms. Two large urns held the final designs which included a wide variety of foliage, green carnations and white lilies.
The flower arranging competition winner in the Old Hands class was Ursula Jackson who also won the Rachel Tarry Trophy for the best exhibit and Ann Norris was the winner in the 'From Your Garden' competition with three stems of daffodils.
Next meeting will be held on Thursday 13 May at 2pm when Rosemary Ward will be talking on container gardening. The competitions will be for a 'Foliage arrangement' for the Betty Warburton Trophy, and three stems of blossom.
Visitors are always welcome. Further details from Pat on 01953 457315 or Sally on 01953 788712.
