Despite not having rain for ten weeks now it’s been perfect weather for a variety of garden events and parties over the last few weeks. Today we have a yoga retreat taking place here and it’s wonderful that everyone can enjoy just being outside! They even used the tree house - so much energy flowing around the whole place tonight! Tomorrow we have one of our granddaughter's birthday parties so a bouncy castle will be in full bounce on lawn I dare say! The poor garden has taken a bashing from the lack of rain but the numerous tubs continue to flourish with love and attention! I'm beginning to get slightly bored with watering I confess as I have over 120 pots, of all shapes and sizes, to find and drench every couple of days.
The Tendring Hundred Farmers Club annual show was a huge success. Once again I organised the Art Show with the help a very good team of people. We had a record number of paintings and a large footfall and attracted a good deal of praise and comment but sadly sales were down on last year. Maybe it was the heat?
