Secret Gardens

Village Life

(Part 1)

My little village church needs a new organ. Cleverly some local ladies organised a fund raising event, which was a delight. Twelve local gardeners were persuaded to open their little London gardens for all to see, for just a small charge. There was tea and cakes too - always a tantalising draw on a sunny afternoon! These are some of the pics I took on my afternoon walk  ...
