Garden Visiting – Members Gardens

Two of our members Elaine and Val kindly opened their gardens to the members of the gardening club.

Despite the fact that this year all our gardens seem to be several weeks behind what they “should” be it was a delight to visit two different and interesting gardens in one afternoon.

Elaine’s garden has some beautiful spring-flowering shrubs, with bold colour schemes and shapes. She also has a new greenhouse as the last storms demolished her original greenhouses. I confess to having greenhouse envy when I saw the new structure!

Val’s garden has a romantic charm to it, with a stream, cows grazing in the fields, arbours and sitting areas, some fascinating planting combinations …. and … tea & cake!

Our thanks go to both Elaine and Val for opening their gardens to us in what can only be described as a difficult spring and also for the wonderful tea that Val put on for members when we reached her garden. The afternoon was a pleasure and I enjoyed visiting both gardens.
