Garden Club News

Nestling among fields and rolling countryside of Oxfordshire is a gem of a garden called “Pettifers”.  The Garden Club were given an early evening tour around the different “rooms” of this garden by the gardener, who was most knowledgeable about the profusion of plants.  Ornamental grasses dominated the borders, showing how architectural planting needs few flowers for colour and structure.  Dahlias seem to be back in vogue and it was interesting to see unusual colours and shapes in this garden favourite.  The garden’s many facets were enhanced by the ever changing and dramatic weather conditions, although the rainstorm kept off until we were safely inside.  We rounded off the evening with an excellent meal, nay banquet, supplied by Carol Wixey at the Hare and Hounds in Wardington.  Thank you to all the car-drivers supplying lifts!

If you are interested in preserving wild life and keeping green places, hiking or painting keep a space in your diary for the open meeting on October 16th when Adrian Thornton will talk about National Parks.

New and current members will be welcomed for the new season’s talks, which begin on Thursday 18th September, at 7.30 p.m., in the Village Hall.
