They think it's all over - it is now
Today was the last of the groups booked in ‘by appointment’ to visit the garden. While it is good to get more money for the charities supported by the Yellow Book, it does mean keeping on top of all those little jobs to keep the garden looking good – deadheading, weeding paths, sweeping up garden debris and cutting the grass a couple of days before the visit. Despite the forecast of heavy showers, it stayed dry all afternoon which was just as well as they had paid for teas as well and my friend (and co-Yellow-Book-opener) Gill helped out. Now, unless the odd individual rings up, the garden is mine again and I can think about starting on the changes for next year.
This year’s total was just over £300 from gate money plus £140 from plant sales which goes to the Red Cross.
