Moe's Summer Newsletter is now on line

2021 Events

What a difference a month makes! The borders have now filled out and new flowers are  appearing daily. We do hope that you have been able to enjoy time in your garden (or  visiting someone else’s). A number of gardens are now open for the National Garden  Scheme but booking is required for some, so do check before you go. Maureen Sawyer, a member of our society (and a committee member) is opening her garden in Stretford on  Sunday 18th July. This is well worth a visit so do go along and support Moe if you can. 

When thinking of the month of June I think of Iris, Roses and poppies of all sorts. We  recently visited a garden on the shores of Derwent Water which is associated with Beatrix  Potter, and after which the blue poppy Meconopsis ‘Lingholm’ is named. We were  fortunate to find the poppies in full flower. 

 

The easing of restrictions means that some of us feel able to meet friends and family  finally (socially distanced of course!), which is a real boost after not seeing them for so  long. However, we feel that the best course for the garden society is to remain closed for  the time being, so the meetings for July and August are cancelled and we will review the  situation in August regarding future meetings. Our own September Flower Show has  again been cancelled for this year but we look forward to getting back to normal next  year. 

TABLE TOP COMPETITION FOR JUNE 

Our Competition for this month is a photograph of ‘A Favourite Rose in my Garden’.  Entries should be sent to David Brown by Sunday 27th June at this email:  davina.61922@yahoo.co.uk.
