Aiming to raise “awareness to the importance of saving and preserving Bermuda’s open spaces,” five pond flowers were created by the Garden Club of Bermuda using natural materials and laid on the surface of Eve’s Pond.
Seen from land and from above, the unique creations serve to remind visitors to the pond of the value of the island’s open natural spaces.
A spokesperson said, “To continue the celebration of The Garden Club of Bermuda’s 100th anniversary and also to mark Buy Back Bermuda’s restoration of Eve’s Pond, three of our members, Elizabeth Adderley, Sylvia Outerbridge and Sheila Semos have created an installation for everybody to enjoy.
“By foraging, they used mostly natural materials, including Palmetto Palm fronds and a variety of Crotons and Pleomele to build five ‘Pond Flowers.’ Some recycled materials were incorporated to provide mechanics and enable the ‘flowers’ to float on the pond.
“Eve’s Pond is still ‘under construction’ and will gradually attract many waterfowl. It is our hope that this temporary display will bring awareness to the importance of saving and preserving Bermuda’s open spaces for all to appreciate!
“We encourage everyone to take a drive or walk along North Shore Road to Eve’s Pond in Hamilton Parish to view this innovative installation today and all week.”
