Fortified, we were ready to start our Christmas arrangements workshop. Branches and grape vines had been cut at Alice and Peter Henderson's home. Additionally people had contributed branches, flowers and cones from their gardens so there was an abundance of plant material to choose from. To embellish our creations Louise and Charles Freeman had collected ornaments and ribbons.
