    On Thursday 14th April North Ferriby Flower Club welcomed Carys Harrison from York for her demonstration entitled “ Have Passport Will Travel”. It soon became apparent that the title referred to the long haul holidays Carys had been on with her husband, once the family had flown the nest. She proceeded with the arrangements that she did to take us to other continents.

    Her first arrangement was based on Vietnam and was a parallel arrangements in a basket with bright mixed flowers. This arrangement was of particular interest, as it showcased British, artisan, spring flowers, by local grower Sally Pickering (pickers.co.uk) Sally is also part of the wider “Flowers from the Farm”, Yorkshire network, where customers can buy fresh seasonal blooms directly from the grower. A great idea should you have a wedding or a large party to organise.

    Her second arrangements took us to the tropical dry areas of Australia entitled “Tropical Delight” using driftwood in a tall contained and heliconia, protea and anthuriums. Her third arrangement was “Rising Sun” and took us to Japan and she used a large tall bowl to which she incorporated meshwork and red fans and exotic red and yellow flowers. We stayed in Japan for the fourth arrangements which was a simple typical Ikebana arrangements in a square box with bamboo and yellow chrysanthemums being the Japanese favoured flower colour and on to arrangements five where we moved to the cherry blossom season in Japan. Carys had made an fabulous picture frame incorporating bead work etc to form the design of cherry blossom. She then did an arrangement in the top using tulips, roses and white orchids. Her final arrangement took us to Austria where she went to do some flower work and this was all in Green and white with pussy willow, lilies, chrysanthemums and roses. Whilst doing the arrangements she told us interesting stories of their travels!

    Diary note that next month Thursday 12th May we have National Demonstrator Craig Bullock from Burnley coming to the Club and his demonstration is entitled “Of This Nature”.. It promises to be a fabulous evening and non-members are very welcome, and a limited number of tickets are available either from North Ferriby Post office or our Secretary Margaret Hobson on Tel:634114.
