The opening of the new facilities and the renovation at the Altona Memorial Park was held on Wednesday 24th February. Ikebana International Melbourne Chapter was asked to display two large arrangements in front of the huge wall of the Function Room, overlooking the Japanese garden. I created one of them; this work using Crepe myrtle, Pyracantha (red berries), Chrysanthemum and the yellow lichen clad branch in a black glass container. The Ikebana was much admired and appreciated by the people who attended the opening.
