10th June 2015
There were 30 members keen to visit Sue Makin's organic garden in Duddon on Wednesday evening. I suspect that the scrumptious cakes she serves may have attracted as much as her garden.
We were made very welcome by Sue and her husband as we wandered around at our own pace admiring the flowers and plants and reading Sue's signs explaining some of the ideas she puts into practice .
The wild flower meadow was pretty and we watched the ducks on the pond. The bees too were enjoying the flowers whilst 4 members admired the shepherd's hut by the pond.
The refreshments lived up to expectations and were enjoyed by all.

Our July meeting on the 8th is the A.G.M. but that will be followed by a visiting lady with interesting and attractive Peruvian products which she will tell us about.

Here are a few photos of this wonderful garden and its ornaments:
