Our (very wet) Open Day

Many thanks to all who came to our Open Day on the 12th June. We were so thrilled with how many of you donned your anoraks and braved the weather. The Great British public (at least the gardening section of it) proved they aren’t put off a day trip by a bit of bad weather. Many thanks to Peter and Clare for doing the catering in such difficult conditions.

“Good for the garden!” we all cheerfully exchanged as we ordered another slice of cake!

 Rachel had the brainwave of ‘pick your own’ sweet peas from the polytunnel, which was a great success. It was lovely to see people walking off with huge armfuls of joyfully coloured and scented blooms on such a gloomy overcast day. 

I had fun creating rose corsages for some beautifully crafted hats, made by a fabulous milliner in Harris Arcade Reading called Adrienne Henry www.adriennehenry.co.uk

I couldn’t resist showing you this photo as well, not very flattering of me, but it makes me laugh!

 We have another Open Garden Day on 10th July 1pm – 5pm which is part of the NGS yellow book . Although we’re always pleased to see a bit of rain, maybe it could come on another day please? 

Hopefully see you all on the 10th July!
