It has been an interesting year weatherwise. Spring was cold, and the summer lagged behind by about two weeks. We planted up a new border in April, which by July was burgeoning! This was probably due to all the guinea pig manure I used before planting up. Late June saw our first Open Garden evening, which despite rain easing 5 minutes before our first visitor, proved quite a success. Then came our Daylily Weekend mid July. We were well attended. Saturday was quite cold and overcast, but the Sunday turned into a glorious day with warm sunshine. Lots and lots of positive feedback, and we made over £500 for Macmillan Nurses. Planting continues, and new borders and landscaping is in the pipeline. We revamped the back garden, so may be able to allow our visitors to view this area now. Seeds have been sown, and some already germinated for next year. Weather is starting to slow things down now, although a lot of plants are still flowering.
