DAY TRIP TO ORANGE GARDENS 8TH APRIL

It was beautiful weather for our day trip to Orange gardens.   We saw five amazing gardens ranging from small town house gardens to one of six acres.   Thank you very much to the owners for allowing us to visit. ( Rose & Bart Westgeest, Sally Larance, Dulcie & Alan Griffith, Bob & Liz Smith and Di & Russell Turner).  They were stunning!   Thanks you also to Michael and the staff at “Patmos Garden Cafe”  for the delicious lunch and Bill Berry for getting us to and from Orange.

Our meeting on 2nd April will be held at the garden of David and Judy Pennell, 90 Windemere Road, Robin Hill at 2.00pm. David and Judy have only lived in this beautiful location for three years, and have enjoyed the established plantings and lovingly restored many gardens and added their personal touch. The prostrate conifers are an outstanding feature as is the small productive orchard. Windemere Road is a right turn off the Mid Western Highway – the road to Blayney – and proceed to the very end. Parking will be in the cul de sac at the end of Windemere Rd, and then enjoy a wonder up the magnificent driveway to the home. Drop off will be up the driveway and proceed to the level area behind the home. There is only limited shade in our meeting location. Our meeting will commence at 2pm. Please bring a chair, mug and plate of food to share.

Getting ready for May!!

Our May 2017 meeting is to be held on the 7th May at the home of Ton and Betty Peeters, 9 Hassall Grove, Kelso at 2.00pm. Hassall Grove leads off Tareena Avenue. Ton and Betty have lived here for only three years and have established a wondrous display of Australian natives which is very gratifying as they are not “native” themselves. However, they have certainly demonstrated how to select and enhance our wonderful plants. Ton and Betty owned and ran the Cranebrook Native Nursery near Penrith for 28 years and another nursery at Warrimoo simultaneously. There is very little shade in such a young garden.
