Flower and produce – 27th July 2021

After 16 months on Zoom, we came to the last online meeting of the Reflections Friendship Group.

We had a selections of photos showing members gardens, prize blooms and vegetables. There were a lot of excellent examples. I particularly liked this rose named after our member J.

We didn’t have time for Gyda’s craft, but if we had, we would have produced a lovely flower like this.

We had a chat about our favourite crafts over the last months. C was keen on this flower (you can see a theme here).

Nikki, from BLG Mind told us about the Greenwich Peninsular Ecology Park.

More information here.

We hope to see Nikki, in person, for the first time next week.

Pearl’s bumper edition of jokes:

O told us she woke up at 3am one night and looked at this web site. She worked her way through Pearl’s jokes (in the general menu under Recordings) and really enjoyed herself.

Pearl’s songs included “Congratulations, by Cliff Richard. This was played for A&G who will be celebrating their 44th wedding anniversary. Congratulations from all of us.

Gerry’s joke:

An old poem:

Gerry is branching out! Jokes and poems – an extra special offering.

Lynne had a flower quiz:

  • What part of the flower is called the corolla?
  • Which cut flower is the most popular in the world?
  • What type of flower is a ‘Lady’s Slipper’?

Lynne had to quickly run off for a toilet roll – so she could do ChiBall.

ChiBall is a serious matter.

Gyda on planting:

The Reflections Friendship Group returns to Shrewsbury House on 3rd August at 1pm. Numbers are limited and many safety measures will be in place.
