The orchids on the bank are today’s favourite flower, but others are also looking lovely, in particular the waterlilies and irises and the roses.

It was a very busy day for volunteers today, with lots of veg to be planted, weeding, edge cutting and strimming; and of course watering too, as we haven’t had any rain for a long time. Visitors chatted to volunteers at work and relaxed over their tea and homemade cake.
