Meeting the neighbours….always a good thing to do.
Whitley Garden Interest Group happily accepted a kind invitation from Park WI (a neighbouring WI) to visit the garden belonging to the daughter of one of their members in WHITLEY.
What a treat to see a magnificently planned and maintained garden, hidden from view when you walk or drive around Whitley.
So many different features, from the courtyard pond (the koi were camera shy) , the recently built raised beds garden…. It looked like we were at the Chelsea Flower Show, …. but in Whitley.
The knot garden was well established and perfect, was followed by a walk down the extensive back lawn to a natural wildflower area bordering on to a boundry stream…
A wire rooster was a favourite of many.. where can you buy one?
The high light was definitely a Wisteria walk which was total perfection.
Members enjoyed the company of each other, our friendly neighbouring WI , and our wonderful local hostess, who served us with tea, coffe and homemade cakes, with expert input from Ross the gardener.
An afternoon to remember in our lovely village of Whitley.
Thank you to Park WI and Victoria.
