Event Description

Saturday November 14th 10am

Phil has offered to be our guest reporter this time - thank you Phil. If anyone takes any good photos on the day please send these to Phil (quickly is good) to include.

We're off to visit Elizabeth's new garden. Gayle D's lovely daughter who helps out at Gayle's GV's.

A suburban garden with some natives and a large olive tree - some slopes but fairly flat where you walk.  

The aim is to have plenty of edibles, flowers, play and adventure areas for 2 small children (4 & 3), not too much work for their parents. 

Parking on street. 

…………………………………………………………………………………………

IT'S GOOD TO HAVE A VARIETY OF PEOPLE REPORTING ON THESE GV'S TO GIVE DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES. LOOKING FOR A VOLUNTEER TO TAKE SOME PHOTOS ON THE DAY AND WRITE UP A REPORT IN THEIR OWN WORDS. ANY ONE LIKE TO OFFER? - PHIL HAS OFFERED, THANK YOU PHIL.

………………………………………………………………………………………

 

Children welcome but must be supervised by parents at all times.

Please bring a small plate of food or drink to share and any plants, produce or seed that you want to share, swap or sell.

RSVP required for the address to be sent closer to the date to the email address you nominated when you joined.

Late attendees welcome. Message Lissa or phone 0414 445 581 on the day for the address.

WANT TO HOST A GV OF YOUR OWN?

It did clear eventually but it was heavy with thunder for a bit. Sunny when we left.

Dang about the rain. Gardener's friend yes but not a cataract-owners friend. Think the flare of rain on a windscreen - seeing is OK just but wonder at the safety when how heavy it's going  to be is unknown. We got to Lissa's driving through slashing rain around Lawnton when it was only tinkling down at home.

I do hope that it cleared up and you all had a wonderful time!

Thanks, Cheryl. I was away from the computer when you sent your request. Good to know there's people out there willing to help a poor lost soul.

Have fun this morning guys - just remember rain is the gardeners friend.  Sorry I can't join you.

Comment by Phil on November 14, 2015 at 9:29

I think you wrote too soon Valerie. It's really raining fairly hard here just a couple of suburbs over. But looking at the BOM radar the rain front is moving east and should be clear in 30 minutes or so - fingers crossed.

Comment by Lissa on November 14, 2015 at 9:21

Not to worry Cheryl I sent her the address also. She can also ring me on 0414 445 581 if still having problems.

Bring a brollie today folks :)

Yay the rain is dying away just in time for GV

Morning LIssa, haven't had acceptance by Barbara yet so can't send address to her.  Won't see you this morning have to attend meeting with Betheny (granddaughter - she has moved in with us)

Comment by Lissa on November 14, 2015 at 9:05

Thank you Cheryl for coming to the rescue :D

Barbara, Lissa has probably left to help setting up.  I have sent you a friend request, if you accept it I will send you the address - no addresses are put up for everyone to see.
