It’s that time of year again when our gardens have become green with spring leaves. Amongst the leaves are precious fragile blooms.
You are invited to be both contributor and judge at tonight’s annual Spring Flower Show. For those wanting to play a part in the competition, please bring your exhibits soon after 6:30pm to our meeting place, Senior Citizens Hall in Warburton. From 7:30pm members will become judges so bring pens to help cast your votes.
See you then and, bring a prospective member along with you.
Here are some photos of Jenny’s recent trip to South America
The homes on the floating island on Lake Titicaca have a floor of reeds at least a meter think. Walking on them feels a bit spongy but the floor is dry. Every year or so they cut more reeds & add to it. The root of these reeds floats like a cork.
Be at Macchu Pichu on the 21st of June to enjoy the winter solstice. The rising sun will shine thru a ‘window’ space in the wall forming a triangle of sunlight on the opposite wall.
Not a nail/glue is used on all these walls…just stone on stone – quite clever really and everything is lined up with the peaks, sun & moon.

I started blogging for this site when I attended my first Garden Club Meeting in July 2015. To find enough information to even find out where to attended and what time the meetings were held, was not as straight forward as I thought it should be. So here we are.
And then I thought, “why not include photos of members’ gardens and all the other stuff that clubs need?. So I did. Why not upload some pictures of your garden to the site? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you can find yourself around the site and gain some information that will make your day an interesting, learning day.
