My goodness, it has been a long winter and by chance we programmed this May to have an indoor meeting, inviting Christine Tait, a silver gilt medalist Garden Designer who delivered inspiration, designing gardens creating suitable sensible ideas using contrasting materials and planting selective shrubs to give structure.

Thankfully the weather seems to be more encouraging to tempt us into the garden to put some of the ideas into practice. As her images showed, her gardens were in complete harmony with the surroundings. This was the last indoor meeting for this year although groups are visiting Morton Hall and I also suggest Rockcliffe Gardens in the Cotswolds (GL 54 2JW) who are

having a NGS OPEN DAY on JUNE 6th. This coincides with Chatsworth Flower Show which also makes a glorious day out. Can I remind you about the plant stall at the Fete on Sunday 10th when we would be grateful for plants for the Garden Club Stall. To end another successful year we will have a party at Ingon Grange, home to Margaret and Rodney Watkins on Tuesday July 3rd 7.00 for 7.30pm. Members to bring contributions for the Buffet Table, your own wine(also glasses, plates and cutlery).

Enjoy your garden during the summer months and look forward to meeting up at Ingon  Grange, maybe at Chatsworth, the fete  and around the Village.
