Wish list in Old Buckenham

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
Old Buckenham Village Hall was once again full of enthusiastic flower arrangers and gardeners for the November meeting. With the weather growing increasingly colder a warm welcome was given to Adele Kent as she made a return visit to the Club to present her demonstration titled “I Have a Little List”. She said many people make lists – shopping lists, to do lists, do not forget lists. Adele has a wish list and using foliage and flowers she created her wish list – the first arrangement a meadow using grasses and gerberas, the second a kitchen garden using a wooden trellis, apples and beautiful red roses, the third a herbaceous border, with tall blooms at the back and shorter at the front (as they should be but often aren’t) followed by a classical design, a Hogarth curve and a tropical garden. Whilst delighting everyone with her flower arranging she also shared family memories and the new love in her life, her granddaughter. Once again several members went home with beautiful arrangements as raffle prizes.
Winner of the competition for November titled “Autumn Glory” was Jean Carnwell.
The next meeting will be at Old Buckenham Village Hall on Thursday 8 December at 2pm (this is a members only Christmas meeting).
