F is for Flower Arranging



I took up this hobby last year as a complete beginner.  Each month we are given a theme and each person interprets it to suit his or her space, therefore each piece of work is different. 



Kath, our time- served florist teacher, scores each display and, to my utter amazement, I won a silver cup for best newcomer.  I was over the moon to receive my first cup for anything at all and I am not at all what you would call artistic.

I find the process therapeutic and enjoy the company of the others in the class, none of whom take themselves too seriously.

The foliage in the garden (and those of my neighbours) are pruned to within an inch of their lives and I can’t pass a charity shop or car boot without finding a container which may house a display.

  6. I've always longed to be able to arrange flowers. These are lovely. Mine always look like they've been plonked down for a minute while I get on with something else!
