Jane Ellis July 2019

We were pleased to welcome Jane back to Bedford again this month. The designs represented things that delight us hence her title ‘A Box of Delights’. We had  representations of pancakes, coffee and Turkish Delight, as well as the pleasure we get from the garden and from looking at the moonlight.  

There was a  wide variety of beautiful flowers (including stocks, gerbera, sunflowers- with and without the petals, clematis, lisianthus, peonies, callas, roses and pin head protea)  and foliage (including fatsia, winter flowering honeysuckle, beech, rosemary, bergenia , phormium and eucalyptus).   The mechanics used  were also varied; foam free using a grid made from tape,  the use of minimal floral foam, a hand tie within a frame made from twisted tendrils from a kiwi plant in addition to more traditional mechanics in lovely containers.

The stage at the end of the evening was also a ‘delight’ with beautiful, different and colourful designs and there were many happy raffle  winners.

Thank you Jane for an instructive, entertaining and enjoyable demonstration. Thank you also for allowing us to post a couple of pictures
