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.

JUNE, JULY AND AUGUST MEETINGS (WINTER) will be held at the Bathurst Senior Citizen’s Centre – 176 Russell Street.(Or end of Flanagan Lane, off Russell Street, near Rankin Street roundabout.)  Please bring your mug and a plate to share.

At the June meeting the speaker will be member Chris Stewart.  Chris’ topic is “A Potted History of Gardening in Bathurst” from 1870 onwards; who planted our Street Trees; forgotten and lost parks and gardens.

Fiona Ogilvie is our speaker in July.   Fiona is another member of the club and is a writer for the “Land”.
