Our first visit out this year was to 5, Parklands Green, in Fornham St Genevieve - a beautiful garden. We had a lovely dry evening to explore all the pathways around the ponds and the woodland, finishing with some lovely cake! Here you can see Bill thanking Jane, the owner.
For the second visit of the year we are returning to Drinkstone Park - IP30 9ST on July 1st. We will meet there at 7.00pm, to take as much advantage of the light as possible. This is a three acre garden with wildlife and ornamental ponds, herbaceous borders, roses, orchard, woodland and wildlife area, productive vegetable plot with poly tunnel and greenhouses. The garden also boasts an original Ha Ha with views across the Suffolk landscape. 'Our Folly' is a sunken garden created from part of the unearthed cellars of an old mansion demolished in 1950 now planted with ferns.
We have been before, a few years ago, but it is well worth a second visit - bring along a friend that didn't come last time! Everybody is welcome. The charge of £6.50 each includes a drink, and of course .... cake!
