Calm, rustic contemplation – A flower display by Kenneth Jackson
Congratulations to our very own organist Kenneth Jackson who recently participated in the Johannesburg International Flower Show which took place at the Mall of Africa on the 30 Oct 2019 – 03 Nov 2019. Kenneth’s arrangement was titled “Calm, rustic contemplation and won an Award of Excellence at the show. Kenneth arranged all the pieces on display in a 3×3 stand in the Net Florist Grand Pavilion. South African landscapers created gardens outside the Mall of Africa within 5 days, a remarkable achievement.
His exhibition was made possible by kind donations received from St Francis parishioners such Nigel and Jillian Carmen, Russell and Melanie du Toit, Martin Pryor and Mymie Vos. The stand and budget was donated by Jill Manson. He would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all who supported him.
Beauty is indeed needed in our country, upliftment of all our senses! Creation requires our participation, spiritual growth happens through appreciation of the less tangible and ephemeral parts of our world
