Dear Members

They say the sun shines on the righteous! After a cold, wet Wednesday, it was all change for our outing to the gardens near Sarlat on Thursday. What a great outing it was! 

Les Jardins d’Eau, the waterlily gardens, proved to be spectacular. Everyone had a good lunch, either in a restaurant or under a weeping willow and after a rather arduous walk for some, the beautiful Jardins de Cadiot. For those who couldn't make it, both are thoroughly recommended.

Next month we will be holding the ANNUAL GARDEN PARTY. Slightly different this year starting at 5.30pm on Thursday 11th July. It will be early evening apéros instead of tea at Chez Vignas. Please bring a plate of apéros to share. The club will provide the fizz. 

There will be a pétanque competition, tombola, books and prize for the best flower arrangement. This will be followed by BBQ for those who want to stay on. Meats, salads, dessert and wine all for 10€ euros.

For us to cater, especially for the BBQ, it is very important that you let me know if you are coming?

Enjoy August with your guests and tend your vegetables, herbs and flowers ready for the HARVEST LUNCH AND HORTICULTURE SHOW on Thursday, September 12th.

Best wishes
