The wonderful Helen Hokinson (clearly an important influence for Kay Kato, by the way) drew this in the 1940's.
These photographs were taken by me today. There is something reassuring and gentle to be part of something that has changed so little over time. The lecture, held in a different space, was by an eminent rosarian. We learned about easy-to-grow floribundas. Then, as always, we adjourned for tea and cookies and tiny sandwiches, and to admire the horticultural specimens (individual twigs and snips and branches, all individually judged and commented upon) and floral arrangements in different "classes" (novice, intermediate, etc.). I'm an "intermediate", if you must know, but didn't compete today.
