Members of Abbots Langley Flower Arrangement Society enjoyed a virtual trip around the world with Lesley Sturdy at their meeting last week.

Beginning in New Zealand, a large piece of drift wood four feet high with white roses and gypsophila, represented the snow on the mountain peaks, while flying in a balloon over the Canterbury plains.

The group moved on to Singapore with a display of orchids and then to Oman with fern fronds sprayed in gold and aspidistra leaves and small orange gerbera showing the rich colours of the temples.

Then on to France to show their modern approach to flower arranging, with a design using a round bowl with rolled aspidistra leaves, gypsophila and calla lilies and incorporating the stalk of the aspidistra.

Lesley’s talk then brought the group home to England with an arrangement of spring flowers of iris, narcissus and tulips.

The group’s next meeting is at 7pm on Thursday, March 27, at Henderson Hall in Abbots Langley, when Sally Hardy will give a demonstration entitled "Anything Goes".
