There was torrential rain and high winds both before and after this lovely photo of potential new volunteers being shown round the Gardens!
When the sun was shining the Gardens looked fabulous – with the honey bees buzzing around the peach blossom; and daffodils in every direction. Of course our stalwart volunteers were there: picking up branches brought down by the wind; doing some planting and weeding; and putting new fencing around the stumpery. Meanwhile, the Trustees inspected the lily pond and reached decisions on the restoration work required, before we replant the lilies and refill it.
So, we showed the joy of our volunteering as well as the grit needed – and of course we had our excellent cakes too as an enticement for our potential recruits!
