It was a good day at the Shilton Open Gardens on the 12th June, at least it was dry with the marquee up, visitors came thick and fast as they admired the trees. Also lovely cakes washed down with the odd cuppa. Here are the photos of the day, courtesy of Andy…………..
Spend an afternoon in the sun, [it’s been booked] wandering around a lovely Cotswold village while viewing a number of gardens, then maybe some home made cakes or a cream tea to energize you ready for all the plant sales. There is a marquee with a display of bonsai.
Our club member Dianne, who we lost to cancer last year…….. https://swindon-bonsai.co.uk/2021/11/17/in-memory-of-dianne-bradshaw/ She had made up a load of bulb envelopes to be distributed at her funeral to guests, so they could plant them in her memory. Ours is now open and is a lovely peach and cream colour, thought you would all enjoy seeing it and just take a moment to think about her.
