Paddy and Ben’s Garden – 3rd May 2015

Once again the day of one of our garden visits dawned with pouring rain, but this time we were lucky that it dried up quickly and we even had some sunshine!

It’s always a delight to visit Paddy and Ben’s wonderful garden, there’s always so much to see and learn from. There was a steady stream of visitors, enjoying the garden and the refreshments, and a good planty chat with friends!

For those of you who couldn’t make it, here are a few pictures.
