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.

The October 7 meeting will be held at 2pm at Spencer and Beryl’s garden at 9 Wilde Close, Llanarth. Stalwarts of the garden club, Spencer and Beryl have a lovely town garden featuring a variety of plantings including clematis, iris, succulents, salvia, penstemon and geraniums. Parking is limited as the garden is at the top of a steep cul-de-sac so drop-off only at the driveway and then park in Stinson Street or Endurance Court. Car sharing would be preferable.

Our November 4 meeting will be held at 2pm at Lesley and Keith’s property, “Greenbrook”, a rural property situated approximately 15 minutes north of Bathurst at 1237 Limekilns Road. The front of the property has a stunning view across the valley to the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. Keith and Lesley began developing the house paddock four years ago, planting native and deciduous trees, interspersed with shrubs and underplanted with bulbs, their aim being to create a windproof and tranquil area surrounding their house.
