Calusa Garden Club enjoys floral design presentation

Calusa Garden Club of Marco Island members met on Jan. 9, at Rose Hall in the Marco Island library.

Guest speaker was Garden Club member Connie Lowery, a National Garden Club certified flower show judge, who spoke on “ABC’s of Floral Design, from a Judge’s Perspective.”

Lowery  explained how NGC, to which Calusa Garden Club belongs, sets standards for floral designs that are entered in an NGC flower show, and how the flower show judges evaluate the floral designs.

The pictures show Lowery demonstrating a creative design made with tall curving branches and a seed pod painted with a purple wash, a design that is viewed through a mesh tray made of lady palm leaves centered by beautiful orchids with kangaroo paws.
