The Queen opens Winter Flowers Week at the Garden Museum
Today, the Garden Museum hosted its inaugural Winter Flowers Week, celebrating seasonal flowers and foliage through immersive festive installations. Her Majesty toured the installations and met the designers who conceived the floral displays which were created using only British-grown seasonal flowers and foliage, employing environmentally-friendly materials and methods.
Following her tour of the current exhibition, 'Frank Walter: Artist, Gardener, Radical,' celebrating the work of the Antiguan artist, Her Majesty participated in a craft session designed for families to learn about winter flowers. She also had the opportunity to meet volunteers from Floral Angels - a charity dedicated to recycling donated flowers from events for use in hospices, women's refuges, and care homes throughout London.
