Gardening Group update

Last months visit went very well and 17 of us went to White Hill Farm in Widford on yet another hot sunny day.  Some of us had a job getting there because of an overturned hay lorry but we did eventually all make it.  We were welcomed by the owners who like the rest of us were bemoaning the fact of no rain.  This led to a very dry and dusty garden but still a joy to walk round and some lovely sheltered spots to rest in.  The views were tremendous and were framed by lovely trees and shrubs.  Our Hostess provided us with delicious tea/coffee and home made cakes which we had in nice shady spots in the garden.

This month we are going to Chivel Farm Gardens which is near Chipping Norton.  We are going on Wednesday August 29th at 2pm.  As usual you can travel alone or meet in the usual car park for lift sharing at 13.30 hrs.  The cost of visit and refreshment is £7.50.  £5.00 is for the NGS charity and £2.50 is for the local church fund.

As usual I would really appreciate it if you could let me know if you are interested in coming ASAP so I can give numbers nearer the time of going.  The postcode for the farm is OX7 5TR

A quick reminder that the September meeting is one week earlier on the 19th September when we are going to Waterperry gardens to see displays of Asters and Michaelmas daisies.  No numbers needed for this as we can visit the cafe there without booking.  Again either meet there at 2pm or the usual car park in Carterton at 13.15hs.
