MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FLOWER AND GARDEN SHOW.

This year the Melbourne Chapter of Ikebana International chose a striking and simple theme for the exhibit at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. A richly coloured gold background set-off the coordinated arrangements. They were presented in black vessels with irregularly placed freestanding black frames. The work of the five schools was rewarded with a bronze medal. Congratulations to the hard working team that put the exhibit together.
