This was certainly not flowers in vases!

Our very versatile demonstrator, Sylvia Bower, had made all her own containers which were most impressive. She requested that I didn't photograph full designs so I have tried to show how beautiful the flowers were and also glimpses of her containers.

Her 1st design contained deep red gerbera and orange tulips whilst for design 2 Sylvia used purple clematis with cream freesias and deep pink veronica threaded through pussy willow and plum blossom in a bowl made from circles of wood.
The 3rd container was a glass vase covered with cherry bark. Into it she had a red panted contorted hazel twig which picked out the red tinges in a large yellow cymbidium orchid. The red roses and red ranuncula did the same.
The next arrangement also contained orchids — this time deep purple Singapore variety which were teamed with purple calla lilies, pale purple stocks and a different type of green carnation with hairy pom-pom flowers.

Sylvia told us that the orchid family of plants is the biggest plant family in the world. A boat shaped container followed which was covered with birch squares and had a semi-circle of ivy covered birch. Into this she added mixed colour gerbera. Simple and effective.
For Sylvia's final design she used a pedestal covered with willow. It was an all yellow design containing lilies, Anastasia chrysanthemums and roses.

Sylvia provided us with lots of ideas and those who won her flowers in the raffle went home feeling very happy.
Our next meeting is on May 9th when we welcome back Sionnedd Hughes, a popular and amusing demonstrator.
