Boy, are we learning lots at our Rockport Garden Club adventures. A few of us got our photos taken around the hors d'oeuvres table before the meeting.
We learned about cutting and arranging flowers from John Fromer,
a Maine Master Gardener, from Merry Springs Nature Center.
It was a real adventure from preparing flowers to put in vases and
showing us how to arrange them.
Start with the filler (hostas make great fillers) then go to those lovely flowers to hang over, in and around the vase - one stem at a time! What a master John is at quickly designing a lovely arrangement of pure beauty.
Get those buckets out and play with flowers while making a masterpiece.
Visit Merry Springs Nature Center and take a walk through stunning scenes of beauty and see what can be done in your garden center.
