The flower demonstration
Mum belongs to a flower arranging club.
Normally you have to be a member to go to the meetings but sometimes they get a visiting demonstrator in and open it up to guests.
Hence mum and I going to a demonstration on Thursday, entitled “chasing rainbows”.
Now, you may think that watching someone arrange flowers would be a bit like watching paint dry… but no, not only are these people flower arrangers, but also consummate entertainers.
I watched in amazement as the demonstrator managed to make amazing arrangements while talking about her life and family and explaining the flowers as she went.
And then they raffle off all the flowers as prizes. Sadly mum and I didn’t win anything so we will just have to make do with the photos I took:
