Etherow Model Boat Club Garden.wmv

Friday saw Velda and I at the lake again, Velda putting in new plants for the summer season so they will be in full bloom by the time of the Regatta and Lifeboat weekend in June.
That is of course if they are watered regularly and as you would expect we  don't get to the lake everyday so IF we have another hot spell it would be appreciated  if you see the garden drying out before going home after sailing you could put a few scoops of water on to the gravel on the garden here and there then the plants could get it from underneath. (Capillary action) 
This is your landing stage and garden so please help to keep it looking nice, I know you go to sail and not to work, but a couple of scoops of water on the gravel isn't much to ask.
We saw that the yacht club had bought a couple of nice hanging baskets for their launch day, but on Friday they were dead and lifeless, what a waste of money and effort  for a few drops of water.
This is the garden to date.



Having had my moan I can now seen hundreds of scoops of water flooding the garden, but I'm sure there are plenty of gardeners in the club than can help, the heavy works done so please help.

Its surprising how many people stop to view the garden and then you can get them talking and give them some insight to the club and you never know they might join us.

Puzzled about his first lesson on evolution young Joey arrived home and said 
"Mum is it really true that I am a descendant of apes,monkeys and gorillas?"
"I don't know darling" she replied , I never knew any of your fathers family.

Fred was the type of bloke who always let his friends pick up the dinner bill.
He had an impediment in his reach .

That's all folks

  1. Many thanks are due to Velda and Peter for making the garden so nice
    I'm sure someone will water the plants from time to time
    Perhaps a little note is called for on the notice board
