Wareham in Dorset - 2/7/18

We had two days away in Bournemouth, the weather was not that wonderful and the only photo's I took were a few of our morning visit to Wareham in Dorset.

Visit to Warnham Nature Reserve in June

We took Sue and Malcolm to Warnham Nature Reserve earlier last month.  They had never been there, and we hope they enjoyed their visit.  It was, unfortunately, a dull day - as it was the last time we were there. 


Moorhen chick - what large feet it has!

The terns were flying and diving all the time

PAGS 10th National Show at Fibrex Nurseries Celebration weekend, June 2018

On the Saturday various talks by specialist speakers were arranged.  I had booked three but was only able to go to two as the schedule had to be re-arranged and two of my talks clashed.  David Taylor talked about preparing our plants for winter and Steve Pollard talked about Zonartics.

On Sunday I went to a talk by Heather Goddard-Key on Cooking with Pelargoniums.

 It was an amazing and very enjoyable weekend.

Note: If anyone is interested in using Pelargonium leaves in cooking, The Pelargonium & Geranium Society have a few recipe booklets available.  Contact their book sales officer through the website.
