Preparation is well underway for the station garden's inclusion in Open Gardens next weekend, we had a lovely day yesterday painting signs and sprucing things up with lots of help from 2 year olds Josh and Glyn.
So are we ready to shine alongside some of the best gardens in Wivenhoe?? - well, as someone who is erratic in my attendance at the gardening Sundays I feel able to comment on the look and state of the garden and I think that we have nothing to worry about: it won't be the tidiest or most developed garden, but does have a lot going on and will be well worth a visit!
Volunteers needed still to be there over the weekend (21st and 22nd May), Jo is drawing up a rota so please mail her: Jo and also we need some more help in getting the garden ready – scarecrow making tomorrow at 3ish, (Sunday 15th) plus bring ribbons and shiny things – and your imaginations!
And of course, come along on Sat 21st and Sun 22nd to check out the garden and hear what we are trying to do.
