Parwich Open Gardens by all accounts was a great success. The day had dawned for us with a slight sense of dismay when our lawnmower packed up half way through John’s final trimming, but we didn’t let that weigh us down too much as short of getting down with the proverbial nail scissors there wasn’t much we could do.
Anyway, the sun was shining, the air balmy, the gardens all looked superb, even Orchard Farm’s stubbornly daisy-studded lawn. Garden lovers streamed in from near and far, to enjoy, admire and compare notes. For its first big public occasion the new Memorial Hall looked wonderful – for a far better description do have a look at the link to the Parwich website – with scores of people sitting inside and out enjoying their cream teas and admiring the children’s displays.
And finally, here’s another link, for photos of some of the open gardens , including one of the Tom’s Barn garden. Funnily enough, there’s not one of our lawn
