What a month, not only the hottest on record and the ground is so dry and cracked, plants drooping and going crispy.
But we had 2 open gardens for charity during the two months, including an evening visit from a local gardening club. The weather had cooled and it was a very pleasant evening, tea and cake included!
We also opened one Saturday for the National garden Scheme (NGS) charities along with 2 other gardens in the village and raised over £700 from admission, refreshments, donations and plants sales. So glad that it was not any later as it just got hotter and hotter. The grass was still green then, brown now!
