The great day has ended. Posters were placed, signs went up ,Shelagh put up the plant stall, Finn turned up at the eleventh hour to do some last minute mowing, Nick turned up with luscious cakes Donna and Minow her lovely daughter to serve them. What is it that people just like a cup of tea and a piece of cake when they go and visit a garden. C. rushed around putting signs up in the garden, Tolly helped out and the sister turned up to take the money. I placed myself in the kitchen and made piles of smoked salmon sandwiches for lunch. Then at 2pm the gate opened and it was curtain up time. For us the sun shone but it seemed else where it rained so only 70 paying people turned up but with young people I suppose about 100 over all. Not good but then again the car parks were fall and no one could park in the town as the goddesses were still around at their gathering. Will we do it again next year? I don't know, if we do it will be for the NGS and the Yellow Book. Now August stretches forth and I do hope for sunny days.
