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.

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:

Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
