Moe's Summer Newsletter is now on line
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.
