    On Thursday 14th July North Ferriby Flower Club welcomed John Thexton from Cumbria for our monthly demonstration who is a North West Area demonstrator. John is not only a flower arranger but an avid gardener and plant collector. He has created a garden at Hazel Cottage in Armenthwaite in the Lake District with David Ryland, another well known flower arranger. John also told us in a very amusing and entertaining demonstration that he has six horses and a collection of sheep. He not only does his own large garden of over 5 acres but does gardens for other people too.

    John did five very varied arrangements using a lot of beautiful plant material from his own garden, hence his title was “Working with Nature”. Each arrangement was in a totally different container from large glass jar, metal stand to pedestal. The first arrangement was a mixture of mauve, green and white, the second white and green, the third purple pink and white, the fourth green browns and pinks and the final one blue, green, pink and white and they all used a wonderful variety of flowers including many varied roses, peony, foxgloves, trailing grasses. gerbra, delphiniums etc all combined with fabulous leaves and greenery. Whilst producing five spectacular arrangements John kept us entertained with many amusing stories – he can certainly add story teller to his list of talents.

    Next month our meeting is on Thursday 11th August when we welcome Janine Gray from Huddersfield with her demonstration entitled “Shop Full of Summer”. Janine is a NAFAS demonstrator. Whilst demonstrating she entertains her audience with her talent for accents and dialects, it is surprising how many different ways she can say the word “daffodil”. It should be a very good evening. Visitors are always welcome and can pay £4 at the door.
