We were then introduced to our demonstrator Lorena Dyer – Lipstick,

Powder, and Paint. This was Lorena’s 1 st visit to our club and she said it

was a privilege to do this demonstration for us. As we get older, we all find

ourselves needing more Lipstick, Powder and Paint and she was looking

forward to showing us her interpretations of this title. Members were

reminded that, if they couldn’t hear or were cold to speak up and it would

be sorted out. Lorena’s arrangements were soon filling the stage.

Stunning flowers in many different colours and some beautiful foliage,

superb containers, and accessories. She talked to us through each design,

and it really was an excellent evening. Lorena was a fast, confident

arranger, and her interpretations of the title were brilliant. It was such a

pleasure to watch and listen to her. Members then enjoyed refreshments

and looking more closely at the stunning designs on the stage. Some lucky

members went home with an arrangement won in the raffle.

The Vote of Thanks was given by our President Elsie who thanked Lorena

for a most enjoyable and knowledgeable evening.

The next meeting of the Flower Club on Thursday 23 rd May, this is a

change to the schedule and will now be our very own Paula whose theme

will be The History of The RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

The meeting closed and members were wished a safe journey home.
