South West Visit July 2009

Page 3 - Gary Dando  Part 1

   After leaving Ron's we journeyed through the winding country roads of Somerset, to Gary and Joy's home. Awaiting us were home baked cakes and a welcome cup of tea, which Joy had prepared. The welcome was very warm and welcoming. The front garden had pots and hanging baskets of Million kisses Devotion and Sparkler, which caught the eye immediately. As we walked through the side gate to the back garden, we were greeted with an artists pallet, of mixed colours, from the many baskets of Pendula Begonias, which were displayed on basket stands. They were amazing .It was obvious that much care and attention had been given to their care.
