The Yellow Book
I finally got my yellow book today for the NGS.
My husband was not impressed with the book, he reckons it was a telephone directory for open gardens and was a waste of money, he said that the open gardens could of been advertised on a website , like the Red Cross do when they go and help out with Open Gardens.
Plus for all the hype they have given it on gardening programmes , you may think why do a book , ok the monies go to a lot of charities.Yet looking at some of the names of the said charities , you would think they would be rolling in it., Yet they always seem desperate for money..
Why isnt the Royal family opening their gardens??There’s Highgrove , Kensington Palace , The Duchy of Cornwell estate and all the other royal gardens.Considering who the President is and he likes talking to his plants anyway, you would think he could at least open one of his houses. He could afford to do teas etc and or sell plants.
(sorry for the whinge, but Arthur Rhitus has set in my bones and i have been suffering today)
