Thankyou to all who attended our successful book launch, garden party and reopening of the Plough Inn on 22nd September..
Our new book "An Open Garden and Visiting Gardens by Motor Car" was taken home by many of our visitors.
The weather was fine, the garden was full of flowers, the wine flowed and we were grateful that so many visitors had come a long way to attend
As for the weather, it remain dry , now into the thord month and today the temperature will go over 30 degrees C. In spite of this the garden remian green and even newly acquired and planted specimens such as Viburnum suspensum, Hemizygia transvaalensis and the rose 'Sparieshoop' are doing well.
In the Uniting Church Garden in Montville Kyleigh and I added the rose 'Candy Stripe' as well a number of lavender Lavandula stoechus to boost those flowering there. We also put in Cleome 'Senorita Rosalita' for follow on mauve colour and Salvias such as Salvia elegans and 'Hot Lips'.
Just as at home the red hot doubkle Dahlia from Talgai Homestead is emerging. Working in public attracts attention and before we finished Loma and Rod Carter stopped by to give us Brunfelsia latifolia and yellow shrimp plant Belerophone guttata to add into the garden at the church.
