A meeting was held on April 3 at the Bowls Club in Abbey Lane when Don Gardiner gave a talk entitled, Chasing the Cherry Blossom. Mr Gardiner showed the slides which he had taken during his many journeys through Japan. His talk followed the start of the flowering of the cherry blossom, beginning in Kyushu in the south and gradually progressed to the northern isle of Hokkaido with its slightly later flowering time. This talk was the last of the season. The next season of talks begins on October 2 when Mr Leeds will talk on Michaelmas to Candlemass in a Suffolk Garden. There will also be three shows, the first of which, the Spring Daffodil and Floral Show, will take place on April 14. The Summer Rose and Floral Show will take place on June 23 and the Autumn Horticultural Show on September 22. All three will take place at St Mary's School in Castle Street.
