THE ST. JAMES FLOWER ARRANGERS
JUNE MEETING
 
Our very last meeting for this year went out with a wonderful little social time.  The munchies & punch were delicious as usual.

Tonight our workshop was Amsterdam - a veiled round arrangement featuring the famous flowers of the city.   Sharon's demo certainly inspired us all to create quite different interpretations.  We did Amsterdam proud!  

Thanks, Anne for your demonstration of an "L" shaped arrangement featuring the Canals of Venice.  We had fun imagining the gondolier guiding the gondola.
We will have an opportunity to make our creations representing Venice in September. 

Have a great summer everybody.

Take care & stay safe.

Each Garden Hero will be recognized as a Year of the Garden Hero of Canada, receive a certificate and be listed on the Year of the Garden 2022 website.
