After the first visit to Lindengate on the 6th of June was postponed due the inclement weather and strong winds. A quick rearrangement was made on the 13th June where seventeen of our members attended and were treated to a lovely evening.
Lindengate is a charity trust set up to help people with all kinds of difficulties in life. This includes gardening projects, looking after bees and other projects which include making things from recycled materials.
On arrival the manageress gave us a little talk explaining how their ideas worked and pointing out that there were certain areas to keep off due to rarity of some wild flowers. They were also a part of a conservation group that will distribute flowers to other areas of the country which have lost them. Also we were told to keep away from the bees hive area as they had recently swarmed. Also not to get too near the ducklings on the pond which had been roped off
There were facilities to make tea during the evening.
All photographs have been kindly supplied by Stan
There were various coloured sheds on the site which made a nice photograph
The light was so perfect to capture the poppies
And a zoomed in shot captures every hair of this plant’s stem
Other plants growing around potting areas made a natural display
Some of the plants looked wonderful. I do have some more to add later as there was so much to see and will try and get them sorted. So but a big thanks to Stan for providing these to give you a idea of the evening.
some more colourful flowers from me
red hot pokers coming to their end
so if you like flowers lots to take
foxgloves always make nice pictures
There was a mound to go up to see the area and take the sunset
unfortunately the sun set was around 21:15 and we had only till 21:00
A big thank you to Lindengate for allowing us to come along
