Maureen's 1st arrangement - "A Walk in the Woods"

Maureen’s first arrangement was “A Walk in the Woods” and for this she donned a warm hat and shawl around her shoulders, then led us on a walk through her woods picking a selection of material as we went. Broom, different coloured cornus, alder and willow which was just dripping with lichen (Maureen passed some branches around the room which allowed everybody to really see and feel the texture of the lovely material she was using). The collected branches and twigs were all piled into a stunning glass vase and this in itself would have been an attractive arrangement. To bring out the colours in the vase green “Anastasia” chrysanthemum and dark red “Grand Prix” roses were added giving a glorious finished arrangement.
