The sun certainly shone on the Garden Club visit to Folly Lodge at Halford and after a morning of diagonal rain and gale-force winds it was something of a relief to find this peaceful haven.  The gardens were deceivingly large with “rooms” leading into areas of calm and tranquillity graced with unusual ceramic, glass and metal sculptures, many made by our hostess, Sue.  This lady has nurtured beds of perennials and shrubs; particularly startling were the patio array of hostas and the many varieties of clematis.  It was a pleasure to have the owners around to supply information and answer queries and to find that they have a “no watering” policy was astonishing.

We are all looking forward to our visit to Kew next month.

Don’t forget the photo competition “Oxhill in Bloom” – pictures of one garden flower, minimum size 7x5 to be submitted in September and judged in October.  Get snapping!
