Welcome……Our last “in person”meeting was in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We were not to be discouraged though…our meetings were continued via Zoom.
However, we have been active in creating this online Exhibition. Members started submitting images at the end of March. Contributions continued up to the middle of June. We began with the traditional early spring flowers such as tulips, daffodils, forsythia and numerous others. Included in this exhibition is what is currently blooming. Therefore, there is a wide variety, some innovative, of arrangements for you to view.
Enjoy…..We will begin this Online Exhibit with: Laurie Wareham: President
