Above is a Picture Showing a Bit of History....

  During an Open Garden Weekend, when visitors walk round, so as to brighten up a small person’s afternoon and stop them pinching the cuttings,they are challenged to find a hidden object in every garden relevant to gardening or topical to that year.

It was started about twelve years ago and each year was different and although  there was no prize for finding it ( although one or two loving owners did reward the children with sweets ! )  many a bored spouse would join in.
First we hid a Butterfly, a Snake, then a tiny grey Squirrel, and in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Year we hung coloured diamond shaped Mobiles.  David Glanville kindly made diamond shaped nesting boxes, in our 20th, and the first year that RHS Chelsea allowed them in, we had Gnomes. In  our 25th anniversary Pam Weston made us Silver Bells! 
Maybe next year it should be a Coron......... Maybe not, let's have a good luck fairy .

 Lime Nail Gall

Microscopic mites (less than 0.2 mm long) feed on the foliage of Lime Trees - huge one on the Moor - where they suck the sap and secrete chemicals into the plant tissue. This causes the leaves to produce galls.
