Garden Club - A Grand Day Out

It was a superb day and I’m sure will long be remembered. We lunched and shopped in Chesterfield then headed into the Derbyshire Dales to see some Well Dressings. On ly a couple of hours from Oxhill but the change in scenery was amazing, especially that around Chatsworth House. The floral displays that decorated the wells in Youlgrave were stunning; such detailed pictures from flower petals, cones, seeds berries and moss seemed hardly possible.  En route to our next village and a cream tea we found ourselves travelling slightly ‘off-piste’ for a large coach on the sort of roads with grass growing in the middle and where people abandon their cars for a chat with a neighbour.  Our unflappable driver sorted it out but I will always cherish the memory of a very low bridge and one of our party standing astride two seats peering through the roof ventilation hatch checking for clearance as we crept through.

Don’t forget to get your entry forms for the container of plants competition to Myrtle Knight as soon as possible; judging will take place mid July.
