Quote of the Month

There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.

Trip to Kitty Harri's Gardens on 16th June 2015

Through members Louise and Doug Cawson we have become aware of another garden club which is based in the area by Lake Vinuela.
This group meets the 3rd Tuesday of every month and has trips, 'at homes', an annual show and their general meeting at the Algarrobo garden centre on the A356 from Velez Malaga to Lake Vinuela.
Cindy and I are looking to meet up with the organiser Janet Bluck, to see how the clubs could support each other.
In the meantime Janet has invited our members to participate in a trip she has organised to Kitty Harri's Sculpture Gardens on 16th June 2015.

The weekday entry fee to the gardens is 12 Euros per person and includes a glass of wine, beer or soft drink, plus tapas and/or coffee and sweet snacks. Both will be available.

There are now nearly 100 sculptures in their two acre garden, and a large variety of trees and plants.

There are plenty of seats, benches and shady areas.

You can find more information about the sculpture garden from Kitty Harri's website here http://www.kittyharri.com/

Janet has booked a coach for a trip on 16th June with Pareja, the costs are 10 euro per head if she fills 35 seats and about 8 euro per head if she can sell 50 seats.

She hopes to achieve at least 35 seats which would make the total cost 22 euro per person including entrance fee, wine, tapas etc and the coach.
