Open garden

On Sunday 19 May we opened our garden to raise money for charity. This is part of the National Garden Scheme.

It was an excellent day. Busy from the start to the finish.

I did not have time to take any photos, most of these were taken by our friend Christine Brenkley and she was kind enough to allow me to share them.

We were worried if we would get anyone coming but we had 146 visitors, the first arriving a little before we planned to open.

Our Mums were on the gate all day, collecting the entrance fees and generally chatting with everyone who arrived.

Keith helped Dean with the forge and blacksmithing demonstration while Vanessa and I served tea, coffee and cakes. Claire arrived to look round and ended up helping out in the kitchen, mainly washing up all day. Shelley pointed out and named the plants to interested visitors.

Our family and friends helped make the day successful and fun. Thank you, to all.
