Making Flowers for Hospice Facilities January 2019


     October 8 Meeting

     Betty Lahiri, today's speaker,  grew up in Michigan on a farm.  She later moved to Arkansas and lived there with her husband for 40 years.   She was a florist, had a gift shop and was an interior designer for 30 years.  After her husband became ill they moved to the Houston area. 

     Today Betty gave a group hands on demonstration and helped members make a  basket table arrangement or hanging.

     Even though she is retired, it seems  she is always busy helping and showing others how to do  the things she loves to do.   We are fortunate she is a member of our garden club.

     Today she gave a demonstration and helped members make a  table arrangement or hanging.
