Art in Flowers Exhibition

On Sunday my daughter Rachel and I left the boys at home and headed out to Woodham Walter for their school fete and the village Flowers in Art Exhibition and I just wanted to share some photos of the fabulous flower displays that I saw. Our school caretaker and his wife had said this was worth a visit and I wasn't disappointed. As you walked up to the church and through the gate you were greeted by the Salvation Army Brass Band and a marquee with teas and cakes. Heavenly. All of the flowers are displayed in the church over four days and were all interpretations of paintings. I love the way that someone can look at a picture and then visualise how it can be arranged as flowers. My favourite arrangement had to be The Lady of Shallot.

My photo does not do this arrangement justice as I had my zoom lens on and just couldn't get the distance.

This is an interpretation of a famous dutch painting
Now these have to be my favourite flower, the bird of paradise, i just love these.
Apparently some of the ladies that design these arrangements are gold medal winners at the Chelsea Flower Show and you can see why.
There was something for everyone from the impressionists to the abstract, unfortunately i wasn't able to photograph them all, but will definitely be heading back again next year to appreciate these wonderful floral works of art.
