Origami Plum Blossoms & Cosmos

It’s flower power hours this Friday, just in time for spring!
❀✿** Irene and Rachel are teaching their favourite origami models, the plum blossom and cosmos respectively. The plum blossom has a long history of appearing in East Asian paintings and poetry. The plum tree’s flowering in late winter or early spring is highly regarded as a seasonal symbol like Groundhog Day in North America. Cosmos are known to be extremely resilient. They can thrive in hot, dry conditions. Poor, unfertilized soil is actually ideal since it produces a higher flower foliage. Unlike weeds, they grow in a beautiful array of colours. You may be surprised to learn that they can grow a foot tall!
