Open Gardens next weekend 1st &2nd October

Here we are discussing an important topic. It may well be about the open garden or one of our many garden conversation starters who knows?
After attending rehab “for the over committed and compulsive gardeners “ we constructed a 12 step program and Gardeners Anonymous support group for people who feel they are slipping into the mulch pile like us.
Anyway we got over it and have pledged to open the garden at “The Shambles” Montville to raise funds for The Cittamani Hospice which does amazing work supporting people in the palliative stages of their lives as well as their carers. The refreshments takings on the days are going to help Frontier services to support the mental health needs of people living in remote Australia.
That in itself is enough to encourage you to come along on the weekend with the added enjoyment of seeing the garden. The garden has been in our care for 25 years and has reached that slightly paunchy, blousey stage. It is a well-used garden where family and friends have gathered to have parties, for quiet chats and for musical interludes. Camp fire cooking ,playing hide and seek ,having treasure hunts and drawing or making clay sculptures are regular occurrences at “The Shambles”.

While you are in Montville head just down Western Avenue and take the next street to the right which is  Manley Drive and visit “Wongawilli “ a big beautiful garden growing on terraces facing Obi Valley views.
