On Saturday 25th August, we had the pleasure of visiting an exquisite garden in Ellerslie Park. Manicured to perfection, one could clearly see the interest, time and effort that had resulted in such a beautiful landscape. Sincere thanks to Phillip and Angela for being such gracious hosts and affording us the opportunity of visiting their garden. Click here to see more pics of Angela Hamel Smith's garden
Garden Club members and their guests thoroughly enjoyed the visit to Gerard Farfan's garden on Sunday 19th May. Gerard obviously has an artistic flair as is evident in his very creative and beautiful garden. Much time and effort must obviously be spent in ensuring his plants are in pristine condition. Sincere thanks to Gerard for sharing his lovely garden with us. Click here to see more pics of Gerard's Farfan garden
There was a record number of members and guests who visited the El Carmen Estate, Brazil, owned by Mrs Wendy Lee Yuen on Sunday 15th April. A variety of healthy plants was for sale, and, with the emphasis on many types of beautiful bromeliads, it was a buyer's paradise.
After a very rainy start to the day the weather cleared just in time for the afternoon meeting at Philip and Rebecca Tompsett's home and garden in Santa Cruz. Set on a sprawling 3 acres of lush land with a majestic Samaan tree, garden club members and their guests enjoyed the scenery and the good company. Philip has a large and varied collection of potted plants and was very willing and able to answer numerous queries. Sincere thanks Philip and Rebecca for being such gracious hosts.
