June 16- Inaugural Ruth Anderson Memorial Fund program presented by the R.I. Federation of Garden Clubs Judges Council.

 

"Exuberant Floral Art" with wife and husband floral design team Natasha Lisitsa and Daniel Schultz of San Francisco.

                                                                              Pictures by Roberta

The arrangements got larger as each one was done, ending in Daniel's signature piece of interlocking dowels as a design structure (the C here). Many branches and flowers were obtained from Council members' gardens and surrounding woods.
