Gardening Group Update
Our March visit to Lime Close house and garden did happen even though I had a lot of people cancelling through ill health, appointments etc. The rain did not help as it was raining heavily right up to the last minute but I cast my magic again, eleven of us enjoyed a lovely sunny walk through a wonderful mature garden. The trees were magnificent and our host certainly knew much about them. A lot had been cultivated by herself from her extensive travels around the world, a very interesting lady who knew all the correct latin names for everything. Needless to say most of that went straight over my head. The sun continued to shine while we had our coffee and cakes outside in a sheltered area. On the way home it sleeted! the magic only lasts so long.
Because of the time of year and the bad winter we have had there was not much floral colour but the garden is open with NGS in June and I think it would be a good one to visit.
Our April visit is to CERNEY HOUSE GARDENS on Wednesday April 25th at 2pm. The address is North Cerney GL7 7BX.
Once again this promises to be a lovely garden and we have a visit with tea and home made cakes for £10.00
I have spoken to our host this morning and he informs me there is plenty of parking at the top of the gardens. We do have a slight incline to the gardens but if anyone struggles with it we can take them down to the house and collect afterwards. The actual gardens are wheelchair friendly so easy enough to walk around.
The same arrangement as always, either meet at the venue or the car park for lift share at 1pm
Please let me know as soon as you can whether you hope be attending this visit. The deadline for cancelling will be Friday 20th April. After this I may have to ask for payment if the host charges for it.
Hopefully see lots of you on the visit.
