yes we did sustain damage in last Sundays super cell storm.. but we are still excited about everyone coming for Garden Visit - the white house and a shed dont exist anymore and most of the big damage has been temporarily repaired eg roofs, chook pens, fences, so things will be quite different if you were here last year.

We will do a sausage sizzle again at lunch time so if you want to stay please bring a salad to share  if anyone wants to stay later, a few local gardeners are thinking of dropping over in the afternoon !

Thank You so much Mary-Ann and Colin for again offering your home and garden to host a Garden Visit.

Mary-Ann and Colin have offer their land for anyone who would like to pitch a tent, or bring a caravan, there may even be a bed left if you would like to Message Mary-Ann.

This should be a fabulous GV, there is a little more to add to the Festivities of the day but I think I will leave that up to Mary-Ann and then I will paste the info into the body of the EVENT listing. Please put this date in your diary as it is a Must See, Don't Miss GV!!!!!
