“Somewhere Under the Sun” was the theme for Epworth Flower Club’s April meeting.

Popular, returning, demonstrator, Di Smith, from Market Rasen inspired members with a kaleidoscope of exotic arrangements from around the world.

Di’s passion for her subject became obvious as she worked effortlessly on designs, ranging from a minimalist Japanese creation, featuring a giant white phalaenopsis orchid with turquoise wool and sticks to a flamboyant South African design of tropical leaves mixed with burgundy anthuriums, shocking pink gerbera and purple statis. Humour was never far away as she kept her audience entertained with a constant stream of interesting and often hilarious anecdotes in her inimitable deadpan manner.

Fiona Burrell thanked Di for such an enjoyable and inspirational demonstration and the evening concluded with refreshments, a plant swap shop and raffle of the arrangements.

The next meeting on May 11 is a workshop with Sarah Atwell and there will be another plant stall. Visitors and new members are always welcome. Please ring 01427872114 for further details.
