Wow, we were very spoilt by Kevin, one of our members who has the most amazing garden. I am not sure where to start only that I have ‘garden envy’ so many unusual plants with fantastic textures and colours.

You may remember the Blog story about Ms Ishikawa visiting Sydney to conduct the Textbook #5 accreditation where we raided Kevin’s garden for additional material for the demonstrations. This time it was our chance to have the luxury of picking from the garden. Where to start so much material to stimulate great ideas and designs? Being in awe of the garden Kevin’s generosity did not stop there, he allowed us to select from his huge range of containers to play with.

What better way to round up 2017 a year of exciting Ikebana than to spend a beautiful afternoon sharing ideas and admiring what others had found in gorgeous surroundings with like minded artists. May 2018 be as much fun with creative ideas abound
