Whiteshill and Ruscombe gardens open truimph!

 Wow wow wow! What a success today - there were literally hundreds of local people and people visiting our villages to see the 13 open gardens - it was part of the national gardens open for charity scheme ('yellow book').

We are incredibly fortunate to live in such a great place - it was wonderful to walk, talk and see all the gardens - be inspired and jealous! Big thanks to organisers and those opening the gardens - a great event! Even the threatened rain held off although oh how we need that rain....

Photos: 1. Ruscombe Chapel at a quieter moment! It was teaming with people - teas and cakes virtually sold out by 5pm! 2. Lower Street garden 3 and 4.  Every roadway and footpath seemed to have groups of people! 5. Webcam in Ruscombe garden 6. Ruscombe garden
