On 13th July 2017, we gathered together by kind invitation of Julia at her house for our Garden Meeting. Julia and Bill’s garden was beautifully decked out for entertainment with a marquee, fairy lights, and tables and chairs in small groups. Their garden was a delight, with so many interesting features to explore. We climbed up steps of a steep, terraced mound and on reaching the top we enjoyed spectacular views overlooking the surrounding village and the hillsides beyond. Then there was another surprise. There were steps going down the other side of the mound with terraces filled with beautiful flowers, plants and vegetables. Another wide patio was on display at the bottom of these steps with many attractive features. Returning to the main part of the garden, Julia and Bill have a huge array of pots full of fantastic flowers. What a feast for the eyes! After the business part of the meeting, there was plenty of time to chat while we were served with strawberries and cream, wine and orange juice. The members were all appreciative of the Committee’s organisation of our Garden Meeting and a huge thank you was given to Julia and Bill for allowing us to share their lovely garden. It was a wonderful evening.
