Our monthly meeting was totally focused on the preparation for the Open Day and thanks to the excellent turnout and everybody pitching in by teatime all plants were sorted, dots were painted, name signs put in their places etc.

For a while we have been concerned about plants disappearing so as a deterrent we put a gate at the entrance.


I gave Neil a hand with this before disappearing to the Arboretum as the paths were getting rather overgrown. It took me the whole morning with the brush cutter so I missed out on all the fun and even was too late for coffee.

Thanks to the hard work by the team there was time to go for a stroll and see some of the pretty plants and sights.


The Paranomus are growing nicely


Of course we can’t leave the Pelargonium out.


The skies looked rather threatening.
